You can't expect anything from Ohio weather other than surprise.

They're dorms. They're not the Hamptons, and they don't pretend to be.

Unless you're of age, bars aren't great for anyone.

You can get anywhere on campus in a very quick walk.

You won't have to eat the same thing twice if you don't want to.

Those who want to drink, do. Those who don't, don't.

With nothing else around here to do, students are forced to find something to entertain them, which is hard to do sometimes.
College Freshman 2013-12-08T08:23:27Z
There is a real feeling of family and belonging among students here.

I have never seen so many attractive people as I have here

The police make it their priority to ensure safety. You have to be trying to get in trouble.

I haven't met anyone who doesn't tolerate diversity

Nothing special, but what else would you expect?

The library has a whole floor dedicated to computers and printers, which I find to be very helpful since I did not bring my own printer. There are other computer labs sprinkled across the campus, but I do not have much interaction with them. I have never had problems with the wireless access, but I know some people who do not get it in their rooms. The entire campus is wired, even the gym and dining halls.

Almost every restaurant delivers and stays open late, which is wonderful when one gets late night munchies. Most of the places are on Court Street which ensues fast delivery or a quick walk. I definitely would recommend Bagel Street Deli, however they are only open until 9.

As a minority myself, I can say that I am definitely outnumbered in the cultural background area. The majority of people are Caucasian and I am Hispanic. However, there is no discrimination towards any minority. People are accepting and do not make a big deal of diversity.

The school takes their honor code to heart. If you drink underage or do anything that violates the code you will be punished and possibly have your record marked.

I have not had an internship yet, but I am planning on applying and hopefully get to experience one. I would love to have an internship at the local hospital that deals with the administrative side of medical care since my major is Health Service Administration. It would allow me to see first hand what actually goes on and would give me real world experience.

There is a saying that people know how many bars are on Court Street the second the get here, but do not know that we have two libraries. The party scene is very popular and people go out multiple times a week. There are at least 10 bars in walking distance to the campus, which adds to the variety and popularity.
College Freshman 2013-12-05T23:52:45Z
I have never been interested in drug use so I honestly do not know the first thing about it. I do notice a lot of people partake in it though.
College Freshman 2013-12-05T23:51:22Z
I have not lived off campus yet because you are required to live on campus for two years.

Athens is possibly the town with most charm in all of Ohio. There is definitely a strong town influence during the holidays. Every year there is a huge block party; ranked third in the biggest block parties in the U.S. behind New Years Eve in Times Square and Mardi Gras in New Orleans. It starts off with the town and then evolves into a college party. It is only an hour and a half away from Columbus, so those who want city life have it at their disposal.

I do not have a car here, so my opinion is going to be a little biased. I do notice the parking officers circling a lot. You do not necessarily need a car because everything is walking distance.

Guys & Girls:
Everybody here is extremely friendly, much nicer than I anticipated. The style of clothing is casual. Very casual. It is a rarity to see somebody dress nice. This could have to do with the fact that everybody is too hungover to care because partying, in my opinion, seems to be the hobby of choice.

If you live on South Green like I do, you live the furthest from the hear of the campus. While it does not take long to get anywhere, 15 minutes tops, walking in the rain is a bit of a hassle. When it rains, it rains hard. Snow is not super common, but when it does snow it is bearable. The first couple week from August to mid September are the absolute worst. The heat and humidity kills, especially walking up Morton and Jeff hill.

I live in a mod style dorm which is not like the typical long hallway style dorm. There are six of us, four singles and one double, and we all share one private bathroom. I think this is better because you definitely get more space to yourself. While the rooms are close together, there is a common room that allows people to be out and separated from the rooms. This leads to better friendships and you really get to know who you're living with; which is good and bad simultaneously.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
