The Ohio State University Reviews
I have absolutely loved my time at Ohio State! When choosing a school my senior year of high school, I was very torn between OSU and another school. Ultimately, I knew Ohio State was the best fit for me, and it has way exceeded my expectations since arriving in August. The amount of school spirit everyone has is unlike anything I've ever experienced and everyone truly is just so happy to be a buckeye. The challenging coursework and excellent professors make Ohio State's academic experience one of a kind. My only complaint about my is experience is, my dorm is very old and lacks air conditioning and study spaces. But after the weather cools down it's not a problem! With alumni stretching to all ends of the Earth, I'm so thrilled to be part of the wonderful Ohio State community. Go bucks!
Ohio State is not just a school but a community. It is a huge campus but it feels smaller than it is, I always see my friends and people I know as I walk to class. The campus is beautiful and green, there are historic buildings but also a lot of brand new beautiful dorms especially on the newly renovated north campus. everything is OVER THE TOP: sports, brand new facilities (4 gyms on campus and one incredible top recreation center ranked 4th in the nation), a beautiful student union, one of the largest and most beautiful college libraries in the country and more. Feels like a campus but has a trendy college area with art music and amazing food. Theres always something to do on high street or downtown because the city is a 5 min bus ride away. If you want school spirit and kids who are passionate about their university, go to Ohio State!
I personally have enjoyed my time at OSU so far. Go Bucks for life! The professors I've had so far have been at least decent. One complaint I have is diversity. Ohio State is not diverse. If you're coming from a high school with mostly white students, it'll appear diverse to you, but in reality it isn't. If you are a student of color (especially black or Latinx) take classes in those more ethnically focused areas. It will hopefully help easing your mind and connecting with students the same color as you.
