It's not super strict only during big events
College Freshman 2013-12-05T13:57:40Z
I mean it's a party school of course
College Freshman 2013-12-02T21:53:24Z
I think alcohol is the big thing at Ohio University. Mostly on the weekends everyone goes out and drinks and parties. I don't think there is a lot of peer pressure but it's fun so many people take part in it to release stress. It's strictly enforced though. There are a lot of under cover cops that patrol for underage drinking and drugs.

Student life on campus is great. They have an awesome athletic center that students can go to for free. They have yoga classes, boxing classes, volleyball, racquetball, basketball, tennis, treadmills, weights, etc. They have a great library with a lot of computers and printers. There is always interesting campus events going on and activities to attend.

I think my school is unique because it offers so many different student organizations. It gets you involved in the campus and community. It also offers so many tools to help you plan for your career and once you graduate they help you with interviews and finding a job. They also help with resumes and mock interviews. Once you're a bobcat you're always a bobcat and that's special.

I think Ohio University is very accepting and diverse. They offer a lot of student organizations and programs of different ethnic groups, religious groups, sexual orientation, and economic background.

Currently I am undecided but I plan on declaring my major next semester. I want to enroll in the restaurant, hotel, and tourism major with a minor in business and communication studies. Being undecided is tough because it feels like everyone pushes you to chose a major as quickly as you can. One of my professors tried to pick my major for me. I didn't like that at all.

I've never had an internship at Ohio University. I'd like to have one my junior or senior year though. I don't have any concerns because OU is great with helping people find some and coaching them through the process.

I love living on campus at Ohio University. The dorms have a great atmosphere. Everyone is friendly and nice. Every room has heating/cooling systems, WiFi, cable, microwaves, refrigerators, desks, and chairs provided at no extra charge. The housing process is easy to apply and switch rooms. It can be a little pricy when you look at the suites but overall it's not too bad.
College Freshman 2013-12-02T21:23:43Z
Every game that you attend there is also tons of students that go. It's a big part of campus life and it's great to see everyone want to support our athletes. There is always school spirit before big rivalry games and championship games. Everyone dresses up and has BBQ's and tailgates to celebrate.

Parking permits are kind of expensive but not really when you compare them to other colleges. The ticketing prices are reasonable. You honestly don't need a car on campus if you live in the dorms like me. Everything is close so you could just walk and for things that aren't, you can take a bus or taxi and they aren't expensive at all. Parking is usually okay in the morning but afternoon the spaces fill up quickly.

Ohio University is known as a party school. I personally only go out on the weekends because I have class during the week. Some of my friends go out during the week, though, and have a lot of fun. There is a lot of things to do other than party also. You can go bowling, ice skating, swimming, movies, etc.
College Freshman 2013-12-02T21:16:12Z
The financial aid process was very easy at Ohio University. They have walk-in advising for students all year so if you have any problems or questions you can ask them and receive help. They are great for disbursing scholarships and grants to people who need them the most. They also offer a lot of financial aid for those in need.

The weather in Athens, Ohio varies from day to day. Sometimes it is freezing cold and sometimes it is really hot. The weather doesn't really affect my campus experience because the buildings are close together so it's not a far walk. Also they are really good at making sure the heat is on in the winter and air conditioning is on in the summer.

Ohio University doesn't supply computers to every student but they have a huge library with a lot of computers available. They also have cheap printing and some majors even offer free printing to students. The network is overall reliable and fairly fast. The University provides every student with a password to the wireless service and it's easy to access from anywhere on campus. You don't necessarily need a personal computer unless you want it for social purposes. Also, you don't need a printer because the library has a lot. And the professors will usually print off papers for you if you email it to them.

If I could do it all over again, I would still chose Ohio University. I love it here for a lot of reasons. They people are always so friendly and nice. Whenever you have a problem or need help, someone is always there for you. They also have a lot of great resources like a leadership center, academic center, and many more things to help you with your major, career, and classes.Plus it has over 400 student organizations to get you involved. Overall, Ohio University has everything you need to succeed in college and that's why I love it here.

I think Ohio University is a strict campus but it's for the good of the students. Since it is known as a party school, I think they have to crack down and make sure people are following the rules. If someone is caught underage drinking they get in a lot of trouble. I think it discourages other students from doing things because they know they will get in trouble.
College Freshman 2013-12-02T21:01:25Z
I think the transportation is great at Ohio University. They have a variety of different buses so you're almost guaranteed to get a ride when you need it. The Ohio University shuttle bus is completely free. The Athens transit bus is only a dollar. So it is very affordable. They also have long distance, on campus, and local stops.
College Freshman 2013-11-25T16:12:57Z
Transportation options are available, but not necessary. Anywhere you need to go on campus you can reach within ten minutes of walking.
College Freshman 2013-11-25T16:11:56Z
The off-campus dining options are great and can satisfy and craving for any mood you're in. There are more expensive restaurants for nice, sit down dinners. But there are also local fast food options for your late night cravings.

Ohio University has a reputation of having "the best fans in the MAC" and we uphold that standard. There is definitely a large amount of students that stray away from Varsity athletics but the ones that do attend the games are very enthusiastic about their Bobcat sports teams.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
