Class hadn't started yet so we were fortunate to visit my old stomping grounds and have a few libations at the Varsity Club. They have a statue of my old friend "Woody Hayes" I am a buckeye for ever and love visiting this beautiful campus. It sure has changed over the 50 years. GO BUCKS!!

We were traveling nearby and decided to stop to view the university grounds. Is it is extremely impressive with lots of excellent facilities. The sports complex is as good or better than I've seen in a University and this doesn't include the football stadium.

It is worth visiting the magnificent campus of Ohio university. Although it seems huge as you approach, it is best to enter through the Wexner so that you see the oval of green at the heart. The Thompson Library has to be visited. Take the elevator to the top of the building and take in the view.

Took my HS junior on the admissions tour & so glad we did. Gained insight to admissions process, dorm life, majors, etc. Very valuable experience if you are interested in attending the university.

How things have changed over the past fifty years. So much growth on campus. I was lucky to go to part of orientation with our granddaughter and I was impressed. Everything seems more student-friendly. Students have so many more opportunities for growth and learning than we did when we were in school there. The campus always was beautiful and still... More

Home to the 2015 National Championship of College Football. Just a trip to see the Horseshoe is worth going. Seeps of College Football Nostalgia. Also extremely beautiful, state of the art Schottenstein Center is a must see. Largest Undergraduate enrollment of any University in the US. Great off campus pub and restaurant and entertainment district !!

The campus is great. So much change and so much build. I say this as I grew up in Columbus and am so impressed with its transformation to a world class university.

Um, where do I start? Well the architecture looks like a dozen different people had a dozen different ideas. It was a weekday afternoon and saw 2 different college students throwing up. Tried to have lunch with my wife and 2 year old son and another drunk co-Ed was trying to fight with me?!?!?! Way to impress someone new to... More

I liked seeing landmarks such as the stadium, the quaint buildings on the oval, Mirror Lake, and the proximity to the Short North Area. Lots of fun entertainment and good food available.
