I truly enjoyed the Political Science Program at Ohio State. Being in the Ohio's Capital and having the ability to be at the heart of the city, county, state and national races were beneficial since my emphasis was in campaign politics. The campaign politics class required to work on a campaign throughout the quarter and have the opportunity to get a hands-on approach to the campaign. I also enjoyed the courses that walked you through each step of the campaign and learning what the processes were to run for office - from establishing a committee, gathering signatures on petitions through the final campaign finance reports. I definitely felt prepared when I chaired my first campaign for a candidate.
The Ohio State University offers fabulous opportunities to students who wish to broaden their horizons. Yes it's a very large university but the dorms, clubs, sports ,the Greek life and the colleges allow you to find your own areas to excel and grow and learn to get along with individuals from every walk of life. It size allows you opportunities you simply can't get at a smaller school. Whatever your degree program as a Buckeye you know you are getting an excellent education and the opportunity to network during and after your college years with tens of thousands of Alums who are happy to share their Buckeye pride, advice and connections. Finally whatever you choose to study know that the University is there for you for life...best times ever!
My years at Ohio state were some of the best years of my life. The friends I met there are still women I keep in touch with. Each time I return to campus I get so excited. I have so many happy memories of each and every place on the campus. I now live in South Carolina and am so proud to share my love of Ohio state. Go buckeyes. I hope you are as happy at Ohio state as I was.
Being uncertain of my professional field of study, I wanted to be sure if "plan A" didn't pan out (which it did not), that I would be attending a university that I could easily pick up and execute a "plan B". The size of the university provided a real life picture and prepare me for working in a competitive working world would be! It won't going to be a cake walk. Regarding extra curricular activities and clubs: If it wasn't currently offered as a club--as long as you had 3 people who also wanted to do this activity--the university would sanction the group as a "club". The diversity of, and level of excellence in all areas of extra curricular activities is beyond what any unsuspecting freshman could fathom.
Loved my area of study , the college of agriculture although at a big university was a smaller family like group. Which made going to a city after growing up in a small town much easier to handle. The professors were easy to find when you needed help , my advisor was always willing to help with class choices and academic advice. My degree has helped me open my own agriculture facility which I absolutely love.
As a Ford Fellow I received a Masters of Arts so I was prepared to administrate in an Urban District. The program was excellent since I was able to work side by side with national recognized educational leaders who were the professors in educational administration. Our program was one of the top leadership programs in the country. I followed that work up six years later by earning my Ph.D in Educational Leadership. Once again by working for the University, I built life long friends with my professors and fellow students. the placement service and the networks of the professors led me down a professional career path that was absolutely amazing. These experiences were priceless.
Ohio State offers so many majors. You will find something that fits your dreams and visions. I have been to many college fairs and have looked at other schools and what they offer. It was great seeing Ohio State offer so many majors. Not only are there wonderful opportunities for getting your degree, but also other activities on campus. There are sports, clubs to join, so many people to connect with, it's amazing!
I had the best experience at Ohio State. As an alumni who graduated 10 years ago, I still remain very involved in the university. I assist at college fairs and sit on the board of their alumni club in my area. Ohio State provides amazing networking opportunities. They prepare you for the future and give you a brand name that you can stand behind. Go Bucks!
Proud to be a graduate of The Ohio State University. A well recognized and respected college that prepares you for life's challenges. You'll always run into former students and fans across the globe. Many times I've been out walking and heard "O-H" to which the reply is "I-O". The people I went to school there with have become life long friends - a wonderful experience.
Attending The Ohio State University provided me with a great experience, both academically and socially (and of course football wise). I have made connections with fellow students, staff, and mentors that assist me to this very day. The education and support provided to me, has helped to ensure my current flow of progress and success. One of the proudest moments of my life was graduating from The Ohio State University. It would definitely be my top choice if asked by someone else or if I decided to continue my education further.
