OSU provides its students with facilities to meet both mental and physical needs. Students can look forward to the new Student Union being built on campus. It is scheduled to open in the fall 2010. In addition to the Main Library, which is due for renovations, there are a lot of smaller specialized libraries and reading rooms for almost every type of interest. Many students say that you don’t actually have to leave campus to have everything you need.
If you're trying to get in shape after that figure-destroying weekend of keg parties, or if you just like to work out regularly, you're in luck-numerous fitness centers around campus are available to students. The facilities get a little crowded during peak workout times, but you can still get around them without too much hassle. Larkins has recently been renovated, and at over 45,000 square feet, it is one of the finest recreation centers in America. Jesse Owens North and South and other recreation facilities on campus are slightly more modern, but they are much smaller.
