Ohio University Reviews
The first thing I noticed about Ohio University is how charming the campus was! It had a balance of the "little-town" life and city life. Ohio University is so up-to-date and allows new generations to have an environment that reaches to their views and ways of thinking. One of the most important features of OU is that they are huge environmentalists and they want to promote it in any way they can. Also, you never have to worry about not being able to attend parties because of your busy schedule; OU has a lot of parties every weekend. There are also many cops trying to take good care of the campus and students. As for clubs, there are hundreds of them that cater to different individuals! They also encourage you to create organizations! Study abroad trips are highly encouraged as well, which is great because they have more offerings for classes on different trips!
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!
