Campus Technology – Computer labs at The Ohio State University are very accessible. There is always someone to give assistance when needed. There are Mac labs as well as PC labs and most of the time it is easy to find an open computer. Printing on campus is easy with just a quick swipe of a student's BuckID. The IT staff is VERY reliable. They will sit there for hours if necessary in order to assist students.

So Far, So Good! The experience has been great so far -- I enjoy the relax atmosphere of the campus and have had wonderful professors who have helped me adjust from undergraduate studies to graduate studies. I am also a 5th-year senior on the Ohio State Cross Country/Track and Field teams, which has allowed me to form tight bonds with a group of girls that are very similar to me!

I am a graduate student and therefore am not completely in the "greek scene." I have had interacted with greek members at my undergraduate university and the greek life at Ohio State seems to be relatively similar. However, it seems to be a bit less cliquey and not such an essential part of social life on campus.

I find the university campus to be extremely diverse with a wide range of cultures, ethnicities, races, nationalities, religions, etc. I enjoy going to class because I receive such a broad, wide-range of view points and there are a variety of experiences that are brought to the table with every topic.

The FAFSA was easy to fill out. The scholarship application and external scholarships are not made known enough to the students. You have to search the website to find them. The financial aid office tends to not get things done accurately sometimes, because they have so many students. Additionally, the lines are long.

I do not live on campus, so am not entirely sure. However, in terms of Academic Conduct, there is no tolerance for cheating or plagerism.

Not Applicable – I do not live on campus. I live in an apartment about 10 minutes from campus.

Most of the nightlife is off-campus drinking at people's apartments.

Student Success Rocks! It seems like it would be tough to get better assistance with school work than what OSU ATI provides. There are professional tutors on staff all the time as well as peer tutoring and combined with small class sizes.

Not Too Bad – Its normal northeast Ohio weather which means cold, rainy/snowy and temperamental. However it is not very often severe and student housing is a 5 minute walk from class.

Agricultural School=Drinking – Here at Ohio State ATI in Wooster everything is all about drinking. Lots of beer and country music. Little bit of weed here and there but that is to be expected.

Columbus (And a Student Pop of 50K) Provides Endless Entertainment – I enjoy going to school in Columbus, Ohio. Coming from Connecticut, outside of NYC by about an hour, I'm used to a huge and slightly overwhelming city. Columbus provides a city life with culture and entertainment without being overwhelming.
Touring productions often come through Columbus. There are endless bars and restaurants off campus, both high class and inexpensive. Columbus is also very close to farmland. I take horseback riding lessons 20 minutes outside of the city.
In addition, you'll be hard-pressed not to find something to do on one of the largest campuses in America. OSU provides a major source of entertainment at the union almost every day of the year. Recently the Ace of Cakes team visited to give a panel. Lady Gaga is coming in the spring. I the past Conan O'Brien, Weezer, and other celebs have visited.

I have had so much trouyble trying to find money to pay for school. The people at the financial aid office are no help. I feel as if i am just another number at this school and i have had incredible difficulty trying to take out loans and search for grants.

Guys & Girls:
There is a boy/girl for everyone and anyone. Most of the students around here would say that there is a huge selection of girls/guys. From short, fat, skinny, tall, dark, light, blonde, brunette, you can find any type of partner that you want!

Most of the students are located in the same area West of campus. Businesses arose around the off campus housing making this school its own community with everything including most students within walking distance.

Easy Process – I qualified for a certain category in which I was given money and a chance to compete for more. I ended up getting full tuition from a few essays I wrote, and even an extra couple hundred by applying to departmental scholarships. All things considered, it really wasn't too difficult.
College Senior 2011-01-25T06:44:40Z
Pretty Diverse – I've found that there is a large degree of diversity on campus, all kinds of people get accepted at the largest University in America. I've met people of many different races, economic backgrounds, political and religious belief. Everyone here is very friendly and welcoming.

Go to High Street – All along high street on the east side of campus are plenty of places to eat. Probably the most popular place, Cane's, serves the best chicken anywhere. There is also a Subway, McDonalds, Taco Bell, Wendy's, Chipotle, Penn Station, and many other food options, even Greek.

It is really great to be a buckeye at OSU! OSU financial aid will help you if you have any questions! They even have FASFA sessions to help people with their finances for school.

Ohio Union! Ohio Union is the best place to hang out or to study. It is very big and it has everything you need for ex, dinning areas, prayer rooms, information, and it also has a piano! If ever bored, Ohio Union is the place to go!

I think the Linguistics department at OSU is the best because it is very big. OSU offers more than 70 languages. The linguistic department also has written a couple of great text books for linguistics. I think I'm really fortunate to study at OSU!

Fill Out FASFA – Make sure to fill out the FASFA. I received very little in scholarships. Most money was from Stafford Loans and money I will have to pay back. There were a couple of people who did try to work with me only there wasn't any money to get.

Health & Safety:
Good Safety Communication – Everyone is sent an alert at the first sign of trouble. My parents also feel better because they can sign up to be alerted. Also, there are many updates on the website.

My first year I would've gotten more money if I had better grades, but this year I've gotten enough to pay for school with enough left over to pay for rent and a little extra book money.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
