While Ohio State is a large university it has carrying faculty and staff who want to see their students succeed. The professors within my major were approachable, knowledgeable, caring, and professional. The department of student life is excellent in the services it provides its students and is a wonderful department to work for. As an employee for the department of student life I was able to schedule around classes and given ample opportunities to develop as a professional. The university has a special place for each student who attends classes on its campus.
I had an outstanding college experience at Ohio State. My advisors were helpful, the professors were well prepared and supportive. I was able to be successful with a great group of fellow students. We assisted each other in study groups, project groups and support groups.
I loved everyone within my program. The professors and teachers within the department were great. The staff in the department were always friendly and helpful. Use the resources available even if you don't think you need the help, it's always better to ask.
OSU was great! It offered us opportunities to see the world, interact with diverse populations and on- and off-campus interactions that built my life into what it is now. The benefit of enrolling in OSU was that you could make your impact on such a huge population wherever you wanted and however you wanted. Regardless of the fact that you had 50,000 other people, you always had a chance to leave your legacy at Ohio State.
My college experience was fantastic. The program at The Fisher College of Business was outstanding. The faculty was world-class. They had relevant business experience and were fantastic teachers as well. Thanks to Ohio State I have had many great opportunities.
The Ohio State University was literally the best I could have made for the combination of academic, social, and varsity athletics. My college experience exposed me to cultures and people that span the world and birthed lifelong friends that I cherish to this day. The College of Arts and Sciences provided me with a degree that is recognized and respected around the world.
OSU was one of the best experiences of my life. I studied at Fisher College of Business and it opened so many doors. I am 8 years out of college and in my dream job as the Director of Marketing. I met friends and collgueges that I am eternally grateful for. O-h
I found the department of French and Italian, and Ohio State to be an awesome place for graduate education. It still is and it was then. Faculty were available, friendly, highly well-regarded researchers and inspiring. Graduate students had ample opportunities to teach at various undergraduate levels and that experience was invaluable when I was in the market for a first tenure-track job In addition, there were some funds available for research during the summer, opportunities to teach in the summer if you wanted and a good and friendly cohort of graduate teaching associates. In addition, Columbus is a great city, great art community, great glbqa community and great place for good restaurants and a variety of venues for fun, sport and relaxation.
Both the political science and philosophy departments have professors being published at the top of their fields which is great for having access to the latest most competent information. In the political science department I experienced what I consider to be innovative coursework for the Bachelors level. Courses included a simulated political game over one quarter. A full course on identity politics. And plenty of references in various courses to competing theories. In the philosophy department, the lower level courses focus on giving students a grounded background in where philosophy has been. Also, philosophy professors in my experience had a greater focus on teaching compared to the political science department. I had a really great time and challenge in upper level epistemology courses. Overall, Ohio State has what you want. There are sports fanatics, artists, foodies, OUAB, and everything else you could want. The challenge is finding what you want and auditing your experience so that you don't keep doing things you find sub-optimal. Nothing including your schedule or degree plan is fed to you. But, if you are meticulous about it you can accomplish great things. And the alumni network is superb.
The university exposed me to the entire range of people, rich and not-so-rich, very bright and some average, but we learned together how to live together for a few years and to understand our role in business and in the community. It also taught the importance of teaming.
