The variety of stores in the Columbus downtown area and around OSU campus are incredible! The local food places as well as retail stores always keep things interesting.
It's fun, there's lot to do in the city and lots of little cafes good for studying or hanging out with friends but at night it can get a bit sketchy. Once it's dark our I'm to afraid to be outside alone or even be home alone. Certain areas are scary in the daylight too.
