I Love It – Ohio State is awesome. i would recommend it to anyone and it is a very prestigious university

Very Useful and a Great Place to Study – the libraries at the Ohio state university offer great places to focus on school work and the computers they offer are very accessible. they have very fast wi-fi and there are thousands to choose from

So many choices – I never toured a smaller school, so I never had the chance to experience that atmosphere. Being at Ohio State and hearing stories about other schools I feel like i'm a queen, especially when it comes to campus dining. Ohio State has over 25 places to eat on campus, including coffee shops, traditional all-you-can-eat dining, a hot dog stand, a smoothie place at the RPAC, a burrito place, a wings place, a 1950's inspired diner, and much more! There is a very wide variety of cuisines. Sometimes the swipe system gets old. On the bright side, most places give you tons of food, so you'll never go hungry. There are two places that are open late, PAD (Pizza at Drake) and Burritos Noches, so if you get the munchies, you can always go there. Overall, I like campus dining. By the end of the year it gets tiring, but there are plenty of off campus dining places to choose from too!

Diversity comes to those who seek it. I recently joined the only multicultural sorority on Ohio State's campus, Delta Xi Phi, and I am an International Affairs Scholar, a group that cherishes, relishes, and seeks to learn about different cultures. Besides the obvious racial diversity, there are students from a very wide range of backgrounds economically and socially. Diversity goes way beyond what color your skin is. Ohio State has a predominant white population, bu there are many other facets of diveresity that make OSU stick out.

Blend of Success – Many people worry about getting lost in a sea of students because of Ohio State's vast student population. This is definitely not the case. I had a biology class that was massive, but that is about it so far. My Italian classes are capped at 25, and many professors would like to create relationships with their students, as long as the students are willing. Ohio State has many study abroad, internship, and research opportunities, all of which I plan on taking advantage of. The professors and instructors are very interested in the success of the students, but the students must work hard to achieve success. Ohio State's academics blend great professors, interesting courseloads, and success in the best way possible.

The City to Be in – Ohio State is located in Columbus, Ohio, a vibrant city with many opportunities for success now and in the future. A few minutes away from campus is the Short North, the Arena District, German Village, and more. Each of these places offer great food, plenty of attractions, and awesome shopping for every budget. High Street itself is an attraction, with plenty of eateries, bars, bookstores, shopping, and more! Columbus is the city to be in.

OSU's facilities are excellent. The RPAC is a top of the line recreation center and offers a wide variety of activities. Several other rec centers are available on campus as well, such as the ARC, and JO South/North. The Oxley Library is massive, containing several million volumes. A new student union also just went up, offering a place to study, eat, or just hang out.

Overall, the classes I've taken have been good. Class sizes are generally large, but smaller classes are available if you're willing to look for them. Professors are mostly accessible. Whenever I emailed a prof, I always got a response in a timely manner. OSU offers a diverse set of majors and classes, so there's something for everybody.

Transportation on campus is great. The CABS buses are very easy to ride, they often come, there are many stops, and they go all over campus. Also sutdents can ride the columbus public bus for free. Driving on campus can be kind of annoying because of the pedestrians

I love living on campus. Of course everyone knows OSU to be big but I find no problem with it. My classes and track practices are all over campus, but getting on a bus is very convenient and easy. It is very fun to be on campus and you can find basically anything you need right near campus. It is very fun living on campus.

Health Information Management Systems – I am still in the HIMS pre major and will be applying to the college this spring. The work load combines math, business, science, and other classes. The work load is difficult but managable. The staff seems to be very helpful.

Not Strict – Outside of Honors dorms, only hard drug use or distribution will get you kicked out.

Huge Variety – Its in Columbus, so with High Street and the Short North right nearby, there's a huge variety of food in terms of both type and cost. Check out Thurman Cafe and Jenny's Ice Cream.

Huge School, So Depends – OSU is a huge school, so there are professors are excellent and care about your success, and also just as many who should not be teaching.

Drug Scene – I attended a community college in high school with more drug/cigarette smoking problems than at Ohio State. Surprisingly there aren't as many people that smoke cigarettes. Some students like to smoke black and milds on occasion and there are your typical drug addicts but they are few and far between. If anything students smoke weed socially but I have never come across anything. I only hear about it.

Columbus has ample amounts of off-campus housing opportunities that are within accessible distance of campus with many different accomodations such as several or single person, pets or no pets, etc. If you start searching early enough you can find very nice places for good money but they longer you wait the harder it will be to find a nice place without paying an arm and a leg. Not to mention you have to watch the area you choose. Crime rate is highest just off campus.

Opportunistic University – My major is pharmacy with a minor in nutrition and another in studio arts at The Ohio State University. All professors I've encountered thus far are very knowledgable and experienced offering as much assistance as I could ask for. If a concept is misunderstood, there are abounding actions to be taken in order to fully understand. Such a large university also provides many shadowing, volunteering, club, and community service opportunities that can broaden your experience, ensure your confidence in your career choice, and also enhance job search and fulfill one's moral ambitions. There is also a pharmacy living community in one of the dormitories which provides students with opportunities to speak with pharmacists and many other ways to get involved in the pharmacy community, which is always favorable for job placement. However, job search may be made relatively painless as these conveniences extend into future prospects also, with the opportunities to be placed in the workforce directly out of school.

Almost Impossible – Nearly impossible to find parking. Parking garages are useless. YOu pretty much have to find a free parking space outside someone's house.

This Ohio State University is the perfect school for me. It has many opportunities, both in and out of the classroom, including tutoring programs, advising, minority groups, athletic, and volunteering. I have been selected to be a member of their Scholars Program for Architecture. At OSU, I know that I will learn many valuable things, meet new people, and greatly prepare for a successful life as an architect.

Lots of Opportunities – This school is for everyone. If you're athletic, OSU has huge sports and fitness facilities. If you're musically talented, there is a place for you, maybe in the band! There is a farm just on the edge of campus for those who enjoy animals and crop science. There is also a large amount of faculty and facilities for the science majors, along with an entire hospital for medical students, which has just started a new building phase. OSU pretty much has everything you could want.

Pretty Good – During the winter it can be somewhat a cold walk in between classes, and during the spring a little wet if you don't have an umbrella, but it is really great during nice weather because you can enjoy the trees and outdoors on your walks.

I'm a Plant Cellular and Molecular Biology Major. I'm a Plant Cellular and Molecular Biology major and this has given me some unique opportunities that I otherwise would not have even considered doing, like volunteering over the summer to work in a faculty member's research lab. I will continue this work into the next academic year and actually earn credit towards graduation!

Excellent Use of Size – Ohio State is a very large school, but they use it to their advantage instead of making people feel left out.

Greek life is there for parties and some other events, but it doesn't dominate atOSU. It's not a big deal if you are in a frat or anything like that..I really can't give it a grade as I don't participate

everyone knows what's going on in our athletic department at the moment..just pick up a newspaper
