This is a beautiful campus to walk around and explore even if you aren't interested in going to school. I wish when I went to college I would've gone to OSU. I love to walk around and see all of the old architecture mixed with newer buildings. They have plenty of green space to chill with a book and soak... More

Accessible campus well situated in Columbus, kind of like UT in Austin. Wexner Art Center, Glenn School have nice exhibits. Not as colorful since Gordon left. Oh yeah, they have sports too.

We had the opportunity to come for an academic session and it was so worth the time. It was supposed to be an hour, and it ended up being 2 1/2 hours. My daughter was absolutely convinced afterward that she wanted to go to Ohio State University. The campus is absolutely beautiful and I cannot say enough about the Buckeye... More

We drove through the campus and found it to be much more beautiful than what you see from High Street. Old and new buildings mixed together makes it somewhat eclectic. Had it been a bit warmer we would have walked a bit and probably enjoyed it even more.

Considering that the campus is in the heart of the city it was much nicer than expected. I happened to be there in the middle of a weekday and it was bustling with students headed to class so I got a real feel for the campus. Impressive but I don't know that I'd send my kid here. Lots of distractions.

Beautiful, alive, great just to walk around with the student body. Museum, stadiums, the Oval and reflection pool great for relaxing at. OSU Football games have plently of free tailgating for an awesome time. Food, drink, and shopping on High Street,

We went here to check out the campus and couldn't find any free parking. We just wanted to take pics of the football stadium. Wish it was better.

...but so much more. This is a huge campus that is busy with new building but the academics are no slouch either. Working to build on their undergraduate program by requiring a very good point hour to be admitted to the Columbus campus, the graduate schools are some of the best in the country. Law, Medicine, Vet Med, Dentistry, Optometry,etc.... More

I did not attend OSU, but live in Columbus and have of course been to the Shoe to see a couple of games. Reportedly, this is the largest school in the country based on students, and the campus is huge to accommodate. But the school has done a great job with keeping their campus, and the surrounding neighborhoods looking good.
