One of the largest and newest workout facilities in RPAC and brand new state of the art main library and student union (the ohio union). Straight up the best in the country for sure.

As a native Ohioan I am used to the four season extremes. Fall is fun with gamedays and everything though it gets cold towards the end of it. Winter, be ready for snow and lots of it. It can be fun. Spring is amazing and same with summer. Tons of ladies all over campus laying out in bikinis. The oval awesome and O'patio (four kegs) is a sweet bar when it starts to warm up.

I have been to tons of campuses around the country. tOSU has amazing nightlife. Downtown is cool when you are older and want to get a little bit further away from the younger crowd. Bars on High St. are always packed and always a good time.

Busses always running all around the entire campus and the entire city. All free with your student ID. Cabs are also readily available very easily.

Not Bad – Parking at tOSU is not the worst I have ever seen on campus at least. The off campus parking is not bad but if you park in a spot that you are not supposed to you will get towed ASAP

Tops in the US – The Ohio State University athletics, student involvement and spirit, facilities and team performance are all top notch. The gameday atmosphere at The OSU is unlike that of any other school.

Overall, it's been good at OSU. I am currently a junior and feel like I still have so much to do. It sucks that I may be graduating soon--I wish I could stay longer!

The diversity at OSU is really not bad at all. One could say it's almost impressive. There are many international students here, both as undergrads and grads. A lot of people come from random places, from every side of the country to the urban and rural parts of Ohio. There is basically every color of the rainbow (racially) and so many various political and religious beliefs. Being in Columbus, OH, OSU has a huge LGBT support group. OSU is a huge college and because of that, it holds a beauty in carrying so much diversity. This is one of its best aspects.

Housing isn't too bad... The quality, however, is just O. K. You'd think that since OSU is such a big place there would be plenty of housing options closeby, but unfortunately a) there really aren't that many, and b) the available ones are ridiculously expensive for their less-than mediocre quality. If the facilities could be in better shape with cheaper rent, then the off-campus housing wouldn't be as bad.

Guys & Girls:
Fun Party Pals – People at Ohio State are very friendly and open-minded. They just like to have a good time. You still have your typical jerky frat dudes and stuck-up sorority girls (although some very nice ones too), but for the most part everyone is laid back and fun.

South Vs North Campus – South campus dorms are more social. They are a little lower in quality however. North campus dorms offer a bit more space. I recommend choosing your campus (North or South) based on where the majority of your classes will be.

Vegeterian Friendly Options – Great dining options with a wide variety of fresh food. I'm a vegeterian and there are many available options for me.

Overall Sufficient – I don't have a problem with the professors; all of mine have been engaging and willing to help the student learn. I really enjoy listening to someone who is passionate about their work. The problem I have is getting night classes in an International Relations major. I am currently working full time and there aren't any night or on-line classes thatI can take. I will have to either convince my boss to let me move to second or third shift or quit work in order to finish my degree.

Try to Remember – There are plenty of clubs in the area to have a good time, but there are literally dozens of house parties going on at any given night. If it's the night before, or night of an Ohio State football game make sure you bring a sober friend who can remind you where you are the next day.

Commute If You Can – Freshmen are required to spend their first year in the dorms. They recently bought the Holiday Inn on Lane Ave. so those rooms are nice. However the regular dorms are small, and poorly ventilated. Maybe thats why so many people are able to wear sandals in the winter.

Health & Safety:
Room to Improve – Although the campus feels mostly safe, there is plenty of room for improvement. I only see a handful of campus police driving around, and for a campus like Ohio State their needs to be much more; especially on High Street.

Research Oppurtunities – There are tons of oppurtunities to get involved and enhancing in your education.

I have never really witnessed the drug problem on campus. I don't usually affiliate myself with that type of thing, but I know it will always be taking place, but to me it is not really noticeable.

Parties on campus are like no where else. You may think you have seen a college party, but not until you party at Ohio State. The people are partying from noon until night, it just never stops. There is never a dull moment at Ohio State when it comes to nightlife.

Health & Safety:
The way campus is set up, you never feel unsafe while on campus, even at night. There are help buttons all over campus that you can press and with the lighting on campus you never feel afraid as if there is a dark place. I am impressed with how big the campus is, and how safe it feels.

This is the best place on Earth. It is like one gigantic family here. The total college experience. So many opportunities things to do here.

Greek Is Eh – Not particularly influential. They are on the social scene, but there is no compulsion to go Greek.

Columbus Is Beautiful! The Ohio State University campus is surprisingly beautiful. It is very well maintained and classically landscaped for the traditional homely and elegant university feel. You feel very at home here. The buildings are all fresh looking and some are even very new like the Thomas Library and Ohio Union. Columbus is also a vibrant area by Short North and the Arena district, though most of the college crowd hangs out on North High and Lane.
