Proudest School in the Land – The atmosphere around Ohio State is definitely busy. There are over 1000 activities going on daily. Students, staff and the community surrounding Ohio State are the proudest people I have ever encountered. We love our sports, our band, our school, and our city. Ohio State is an incredibly safe, friendly and welcoming school.

Some Scholarship – There is a good amount of scholarships offered. Some of the merit scholarships are based on your ACT/SAT scores and your rank in high school.

Strong Fan Support – The students of the Ohio State University are very school spirited. We always support and cheer on our teams. We are like one big family when it comes to football games.

Buses Are Great – Buses are all over if you dont feel like walking. Most classes are at a maximum of a 15 minute walk away though. The campus is organized nicely

Not Bad – The campus food is actually pretty good. It gets a little tiring after a while, but what kind of campus food doesnt. The school makes improvements for campus dining all the time

Everybody loves the buckeyes. Football and basketball games are awesome. The mirror lake jump is probably the greatest event ever. You have to do it

Mine Is a Bit Easier – My program is not as hard to get into as others. I am a Sports & Leisure Studies major with a track in Sport Leadership & Hummanities. You need a 2.5 GPA at OSU to get into the program, however, the graduate school masters program is harder to get into

It's up to You – Obviously there is a lot of use of drugs and alcohol just like any other college campus. As long as you are not walking around campus with open containers you are usually fine. A lot of other things to do on campus if you are not into drugs/alcohol, easy to avoid it if you want to.

LARH Is the Best – I live in Lane Avenue Residense Hall, It's great because the rooms are really big and you have your own bathroom. Only down side is that it is a little far from things. Some of the older dorms on south campus have really small rooms and shared bathrooms, overall they are okay.

I am in a group called Buckeyes for Canines and it is really fun if you like dogs. We volunteer together occasionally and hold meeting with specifics topics almost every week. Sometimes guest speakers will come in as well.

I am never really paying real close attention to how people treat each other, but i see many different people, with different religions and i hear different languages, and nobody really seems to mind.

Pre-Vet/Animal Science Major – The teachers are more than willing to help you, and there are certain fun classes however sometimes the work load can be overbearing and stressful due to all the sciences.

The Ohio State University is a very special place filled with diversity and tremendous learning opportunities. I have simply loved all of my professors, who are extremely well qualified. The atmosphere is relaxed and enjoyable.

If it is very cold it makes getting around on campus alot harder, but bearable.

The Greek influence is felt in a relatively small way on OSU campus. Those members are friendly and fit in well with the general student population,

High St – Take a walk down high st any night in the summer and you'll find a party easy...or any of the side streets as well. Easy to get into the party scene and forget school work. But I wouldn't recommend doing so.

Many Options to Choose from – From McDonald's to cheap Chinese, there is always something within walking distance. Adriadico's pizza is AH-mazing and who wouldn't want a burrito the size of your head from La Bomba's after a hard day of classes and studying.

So Many Options, So Little Time! Academically, Ohio State offers many major and minor options to choose from, including a fantastic exploration program which sets undecided students up to work closely with advisors to explore all majors and decide which would be best for them! Ohio State also has multiple libraries that are open very late on weekdays and some 24/7. They also offer free tutors and learning centers available to all students whenever they need.
Students also have access to a health clinic on campus and have 10 free sessions with a university psychologist if ever needed. There is an excellent campus bus system that can take students anywhere on campus and anywhere in Columbus. There is a never a bored moment for a student who understands the bus system and can get to any club, party, museum and restaurant in Columbus. Students can also be highly involved with campus group or spend their time at the on campus recreational facilities working out, playing intramural sports, or joining a group fitness class!
The most exciting and unique thing about Ohio State comes in autumn quarter: football! Yes, most schools have football, but at Ohio State football games spread an amazing sense of joy and pride throughout the entire campus. On game days, the entire campus is flooded with our school colors from students, alumni, and just plain old fans who come from all over to experience the amazing thrill of being at an Ohio State football game!

Ohio weather can never make up it's mind. One minute the sun will be out, the next it is hailing! On rainy days a rain coat, rain boots & umbrella are needed but wind can be so strong your umbrella may prove useless! In winter quarter, it was sunny and warm for the first two weeks then we got slammed with icy snow! Snow and wind are the worst, but luckily classes and dining areas are close so it is not too unbearable!

Many Excellent Options – The meal plans and dining options at Ohio State are fantastic. Our meal plans consist of swipes. We have a card with our chosen amount of swipes and extra money that allow it to be used as a debit card as well. One swipe can get you a meal at any of the dining facilities, which include cafe style, buffet style, restaurant and fast food style. All of the food is freshly prepared and have many healthy options. Every dining area offers different options. The options can get old sometimes, however, if you are stuck on one side of campus and the weather is too bad to walk to the other side for different options. There are also grocery store type places that swipes can be used to buy groceries, like drinks, fruit, bread, cereal, etc. Overall, the dining options at Ohio State are very satisfying.

Very Hit or Miss – There are a lot of different dorms and they are divided into North, South, and West campus. South campus seems to be where most of the activity is happening due to the number of dorms there are on south and it's proximity to restaurants, bars, parties, etc. North campus is a little more quite and farther from the center of activity but the dorms there are just a good. The consensus for the west campus towers is a unenthusiastic shrug. They are a 15 minute walk to the good dining halls on south and even farther from High street. I lived in Mack hall on south an absolutely loved it, its closest to all the good south campus dining halls and its pretty small so you definitely get to know the people in your building well. It's quieter than say Smith or Steeb but people the students there seems a lot more friendly that south campus dorms like Baker east and west or Canfield.

Tuition Money at Work – In recent years the school has been pouring a ton of money into its facilities. Everything feels like it was build in the last ten years. The RPAC is easily the most impressive gym you'll find. Same can be said about the Thompson Library.

I'm going into Atmospheric Science so for the most part I enjoy the weather. It snows in the winter(not as bad as Cleveland) but the first ten days I was here it rained 7/10 days.
College Senior 2012-01-19T22:06:22Z
There is a bus system that goes around the campus and the fee is included in your tuition and there's a local bus system (RTA) which you can also access for free which goes around Columbus.

The major street by the campus is high street which has a multitude of places to eat. There are places that serve pizza, chicken, sandwiches, breakfast, basically what ever you want to eat they have.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
