Ohio State University-Main Campus Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (81)
The Ohio State University holds up to it's name, but it is still truly only what you make of it. You could go through your whole college career here and feel as if you learned nothing substantial and made no meaningful relationships just as you could anywhere else; but, if you put forth an earnest effort to get involved, truly seek to gain knowledge, and push your boundaries beyond your comfort ability, there is so much to be gained from this school. There are over 200 majors, 1,000 student organizations, and countless other ways to pursue your interests and passions. It can be hard at first to establish a community with so many students in one place, but with intentionality and seeking , the campus quickly becomes small and personal. With a school this size, students are offered nearly endless resources and opportunities, but sadly they are often not fully realized. I would encourage anyone about to attend OSU to do your best to fully understand and utilize the resources available to you as a student. Lastly, one must not overlook the actual City of Columbus, which is continually on the rise and is always surprising me with it's diverse art, food, and music scene, all while keeping it's midwest homeliness. I would highly recommend The Ohio State University to anyone who has a diverse range of interests and wants to be challenged in many different ways, both academically and personally.
The Ohio State University is a large institution with an incredible amount of opportunities. The size of the campus and classes can seem daunting, but the classes are divided up between teaching assistants to encourage more personal interactions and there are so many campus groups that you slowly start to form your own circle of people. However, I also enjoyed the ability to go to the gym or the library without seeing a lot of people that I knew, because I was able to fully focus on working out or studying. The coursework in my major was wonderful. The professors were passionate and taught their subjects well. I chose my major as a stepping stone into medicine (Physician Assistant) and I feel wonderfully prepared; I was accepted into 3 graduate programs on my first round of applications. The Ohio State University is able to offer you anything you could possibly be interested in (study abroad, extracurricular activities, research, creating a major, student employment, etc.), you just have to have the initiative to find those opportunities.
The Ohio State University is a special place to study. It has one of the biggest student bodies in the United States. When you see buckeyes around the country and even in the world, it makes you feel proud of your school. On the other hand, political science is an interesting major, by which you learn about how the countries with different political and cultural systems are governed. It helps you understand the way politics and economics work currently in the world.
Attending The Ohio State University was the greatest experience of my life. I take pride on being a graduate of the university and I would love to go back.
I really liked my experience at OSU. Although it is a large school, it was easy to make friends and find study partners within my major. It was a challenging, but rewarding experience.
I loved Ohio State- it is extremely large. It's a city within a city. It can be a bit daunting at first, but the opportunities are limitless if you just plug yourself in. I also held several jobs during college, and OSU is great for that. you'll have so much fun!
Attending Ohio State University was one of the best things I could have done coming in to the USA as an international student. Not only is it a highly ranked school, but it was a huge campus that gave me the opportunity to get immersed into American culture in somewhat of a "simulation" of reality. It made it much easier considering the amount of diversity present on the campus.
Coming from out of state, learning to become a Buckeye was the hardest, yet easiest thing to do. Packing up and moving eight hours from where I called home was no small task. Figuring out a new city, a new house, and a new world of people did not prove easy, either! One thing made life a little bit easier: The Ohio State University. Classes are filled with diverse groups of individuals, each with his or her own story, making it easy to connect with others and build lasting relationships. Professors and teaching staff are what you expect from a university with a name as big as THE Ohio State University. Prepare to study, to fail and get back up, to be responsible for your actions, and to see the fruits of your labor. Classes will be tough, and OSU has earned a reputation for tear-jerking chemistry classes, so watch out! Honest effort will get you far in education and in life. Being thrown into a new world, a world full of Scarlet and Grey spirit, will show you what being a true Buckeye is all about. It's not the football, the money, or the land of Ohio - it's the community built upon passion for higher education.
Osu offers a community that is both big and small. You can make a home as well as feel like you are a part of something bigger than yourself.
Great University and experience. There is a vibe and energy being near the heart of a big city with many restaurants, bars, nightclubs and interesting stores all around. Columbus is a great city and is going through some immense cultural and interior revitalization.
