Ohio State University-Main Campus Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (87)
It has been quite some time since I completed the undergrad program so there may have been some changes but I would have appreciated a little more emphasis on commercial construction and the typical protocol and procedures affiliated with managing a commercial project. Covering simple construction administrative topics such as RFIs, submittals, document control, scheduling (in more detail), BIM coordination (which they may do now) would have been helpful in entry level employment.
I loved being at Ohio State and the Ag campus felt like a close community. Some of the large first year science classes however, were too large and made it difficult to learn. I enjoyed all of the opportunities Ohio State provided me as far as extracurriculars and would highly recommend this school!
O-H! Ohio State may seem big and intimidating but it is really one big family. The Buckeye Family is one that is loving and supportive. That is particularly true for both the Psych and Women's Studies department. Through my double major I gained a better understanding of the world around me. The professors want you to succeed and they are always available for advice or a friendly chat. The curriculum is designed to give you both breadth and depth of any subject. It was a honor to go to this school that has taught generations of my family and I would recommend it to anyone.
The psychology program at OSU is incredible. Many top researchers in the field teach courses here and it helps tremendously to have their insight and real world connections to theories we are studying. Columbus has many great resources and places for internships to prepare you for any career path you might take. I personally loved having the Nisonger center right on campus as I focused on youth and developmental disabilities. I had a preceptorship here my senior year and learned more in a few weeks than I would have anywhere else. Truly priceless opportunity.
Transferring to Ohio State from a small school opened up a lot of opportunity. At first I though I would be "just a number" but quickly realized that the way Ohio State is it is easy to find your place and opens the door for many things down the road.
Ohio State is a great school if you plan to stay in Columbus, OH to fulfill your degree career. I will say they are very flexible if you are an adult with a full time job and a family. I had to fulfill and internship for my degree but I already had a family and a full time job. My counselor helped me get an exception from the college to take an extra 500-600 level class in my major to compensate and I was able to graduate on time.
Ohio State and the Columbus campus are filled with diversity, challenges, and a strong sense of community. Professors are very generous with their time and willingness to help students with issues both concerning their classes and outside. Human Development and Family Science is a broad degree that allowed me to keep my options open while pursuing and considering all possible future career paths. I highly recommend this University and it will always be a place I hold close to my heart.
The Ohio State University is an institution that has provided me the tools to excel in any step I decide to take in life. Whether I join the workforce or further my education, I have attained skills that allow me to be independent, a leader and an innovator. As students, we are able to build relationships with advisors and professors; post graduation, they have always been available for mentorship. As a transfer student of this university, the Student Life department has assisted in connecting me with various organizations, both professional and recreational. This institution, deeply rooted in history, allows students to create memories that will last a lifetime. As an alumni of Ohio State University, I can attest to the Buckeye pride every student feels walking into a lecture hall, a sporting event, and eventually graduation.
My fours years at The Ohio State University were arguably the best four years of my life. The campus, city, students, and staff all had the most school spirit and love for the school itself. Many of the core/general education classes were taught in big lecture halls with smaller "lab" classes at least once a week to get a more in depth explanation of what you a learning and a knowledgable Teaching Assistant that could work with you one-on-one to answer any questions. The English department specifically had extremely knowledgable and passionate teachers who mastered their specific content area and had a lot to offer to the students who were interested. The English department, however, did not specifically prepare you for any one job or content area, it was up to the student to find their path and navigate their own way to networking and job opportunities.
The opportunities are endless at The Ohio State University. From the diversity of students clubs to the unique classes, making Ohio State home is not hard, as long as you are willing to put in the effort! The university puts your education in your hands and expects you to take advantage of what they have to offer! The opportunities are there, as long as you are willing to work for them! I would not change my time at the university for anything. Becoming a buckeye is a way of life and with it, the experience and knowledge you gain here are irreplaceable!
