The majority of OU students can never envision themselves going to any other school but Ohio University. Whether it's the unique atmosphere, great classes, people they've met, or a combination of several factors, Bobcats are passionate about their school and feel confident about the choice they made. Once they graduate, it's inevitable they will return more than once to recapture the feeling of strolling along Court Street and hanging out with great friends over a beer or game of pool.
Though students may gripe over Friday afternoon classes, strict resident assistants, or how they can't seem to get any work done because they live above a bar, students are still happy to be there and know that the good times will greatly outnumber the bad. It's safe to say that OU is an excellent choice because it doesn't just offer a first-rate education, but also provides students with the necessary life skills needed to survive out in the real world. While not everyone may leave OU 100 percent satisfied with their college experience, most graduate from the University confident and ready for what lies ahead of them and also a little sad to be saying goodbye to some of the best times of their lives. What's most important about college is you make the most of wherever you choose to go. Thankfully, OU gives each individual many opportunities and amenities to enjoy this special phase of their lives.
There's a wide variety of people to meet at OU. No matter what type you're into, you'll find someone for you, whether it just be a friend, or a date.
I plan on finding an internship the summer after my junior year, and possibly even after sophomore year. I know for a fact that my area of study has a board in the RTV building dedicated to helping find internships for students, and all of my professors would be more than happy to help me out. It shouldn't be difficult at all to find one.
I've definitely had some below par teachers at OU, but conversely, I've met some of the best. My major, Media Arts and Studies, definitely has some great teachers, who know exactly what they're talking about.
If you're into partying, there's nowhere better than OU. It's not really my scene, but you can tell everyone is having a good time when you walk down Court Street.
Athens has a nice bus system that runs throughout the day, with multiple pickup locations. I never used them myself, as I preferred to walk, but they got positive reviews from my peers. Also, the GoBus runs from Athens to Columbus (and possibly other places?) and is an inexpensive way to make that trip there and back, for only 10 dollars each way.
