Ohio University Reviews
Review Ohio University
I am a freshman studying within the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism here at Ohio University. So far, I absolutely love it! From the brick streets to Hocking Hills, the campus is gorgeous, especially in the fall. Secondly, everyone here from the professors to other students are so kind and welcoming- the friendly Bobcat attitude truly does exist. Lastly, the amount of opportunities both professionally and academically are immense here at OU; everyone really wants to see you succeed. Overall, I highly recommend this school and am looking forward to the next three years.
I absolutely love Ohio University. The campus is beautiful with all the hills and greenery. I lived in the new dorms and had a wonderful experience. All of the dorms have their advantages, though! The dining halls have a good selection of both healthy items and items to splurge on and I like that there are 3 different dining halls to choose from. Jefferson Market has just opened which is awesome! It has sushi, fresh-squeezed juices and a deli to name a few things. The classes are a good size and most of the professors are interesting and helpful! There are so many clubs/activities to get involved in depending on what your interests are. There are always social activities going on - free sporting events, fests throughout the year, and a lively bar scene. The students all seem friendly to one another and I have been able to make many new friends this year!
Ohio University is a great school! The campus is beautiful, there are several parks on camps and the green space is never ending. The students of Ohio University are proud of their school and show it frequently. There is a positive vibe that comes from students and staff, as they are all friendly and cannot wait to help you. The are so many options for food and drink; with dining halls ready to accommodate your food allergies to the essential restaurants like Chipotle, and Wendys. Find your niche and Ohio University will become your home.
