At least a dozen friends of mine osu alum. A couple dormed in the horshoe stadium which I suggest everybody attend at least 1 game within. Great campus. Great frat and sorority brother and sister-ship upon the campus. Has been for many years and shall remain one of the top universities in America. Fun events up and down High street!

Wow! Got a sneek peek at this gorgeous facility. State of the art in every way. People were explaining all of the latest equipment but I couldn't get over how absolutely beautiful every detail was. It was more like being in a five star hotel. I am a retired nurse and it made me want to go back to work.

What can I say? I spent 7 years on campus earning three degrees, working for the school and serving as a graduate teaching assistant. That was WAY back, from 1965 to 1972. The riots, the protests and the Ohio National Guard were all part of my experience on campus. I had not been back on campus for many years but... More

My son is a freshman at OSU and this was my first visit to the OSU campus. It is awesome. A very well planned and large campus. The best part is that it is within the city. So all types of restaurants and other amenities are all close by. The football stadium, The Shoe, is huge and totally awesome!!! The... More

D, in Bio Sciences and we had attended the graduation ceremony held in the open stadium, which could accommodate more than 60.000 people. Earlier on the previous day we had spent a couple of hours in the beautiful and well equipped... More

The Ohio State University has been under construction for several years. They have worked very hard to make High Street a more pleasant area and ridding it of seedy looking businesses. Though some of those businesses only appeared seedy and are probably missed by some. There is a wide variety of building architectures, and the new student union is absolutely... More

The Ohio State University Campus is absolutely great. It is beautiful with a lot of history while also having modern charm. It is quite expansive so bring your walking shoes. But like every major college campus the parking is terrible. There are a couple paid lots but they are hard to find. Fun place to visit if you like Buckeyes!

Go to the 11th floor of the Library and look out. You can see in every direction. Great view! Also, take a tour of the activities center and Student Union on High Street. Best OSU stuff at Borders on High Street.

At a very reasonable rate I stayed overnight to attend the Ohio State football game. It proved to be a very convenient location the the stadium and very comfortable. A breakfast was provided that was very adequate. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I would recommend staying at this location.
