The Ohio State University Graduate Reviews

30 reviews
I could not love this university more. There is a place for everyone and college is what you make of it. I had a job on campus for three years, and was involved in clubs and research. Getting involved was the best decision I ever made. I was committed to many things, always busy, and enjoyed every moment. It doesn’t hurt that sports are fun there. The opportunities are endless, and if you reach out and make an effort you will enjoy your time. I even worked for the university for a year at the Medical Center before going back to graduate school now!

I have been at OSU for 6 years. I have had an amazing experience with on and off campus housing at OSU. There are so many extracurricular activities to participate in and being in Columbus gives you so many restaurants, bars and activities to do!
OSU is huge, so it was cool to experience that coming from a small undergrad college. Most grad programs are smaller, so you still have a small community within the big school though. There are some general resources available to grad students, but there were often times when more support was needed. Additionally, the OSU student body is not very diverse. It can be a challenge for people of color, and the faculty are also also not very diverse so some students struggle there too with representation and mentorship.
