Beautiful campus. The original home site of one of Columbus's wealthiest patriarchs, THE OSU is a spreading campus that offers great hiking, walking, biking, etc. some buildings are examples of great architecture, and there are some nice food choices at the newly rebuilt Union.

Walking around the campus is a fun experience. Old and new architecture blend well. The Oval is a nice place to sit and watch people. The are many different areas to walk to and see . I recommend the Main Library as definate place to visit.

We recently attended orientation for our incoming freshman. I am amazed at the level of support and services the university offers for students. The program was thorough and well orchestrated, allowing students and parents to attend different sessions. I am not a graduate of this school, so I attended a session that talked about the history, customs, and unique school... More

OSU is a beautifully landscaped property with interesting architecture and a friendly feel. We took a tour for our son who has now made this his number one choice for his college years.

The largest University, the most students, the best damn band in the land and of course the greatest football program. Also around campus you will find food from many cultures.

This is from far one of my favourite campus in USA. You can spend few days just visiting the main buildings and relaxing at oval. If you have a chance to watch a football game at the Ohio Stadium you should definitely go! That's one of the best experiences I have ever had. In my opinion Fall is the best... More

My husband and I met at Ohio State University almost 40 years ago. It was fun to return to walk around some of the never changing areas, as well as to take in new additions and updated spots. Besides being a pedestrian friendly campus to walk around, it borders the favorite stores and eateries on High street and Lane Ave.... More

My wife and I were in Columbus for a long weekend. We were born, raised, and still live in Ohio but in exploring the the Ohio State campus, we found it to be a hodgepodge of disjointed and uninspired architecture. Clearly, the decision makers at Ohio State through the years have had no master plan or the master plan has... More
