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

While it may not be the most charming University in Ohio, the sheer gravitas of the place is palpable for visitors, and practically a holy shrine for many alumni. The Shoe, Mirror Lake, and the core of the main campus are impressively grand, and High Street has a Midwestern plainness that's strangely easy to appreciate. If you're there when you... More

I am proud to be part of The Class of 1987! Had a chance to return to my alma mater this past weekend to attend the Buckeye Country Superfest 2015 and was blown away to see all the growth and development around campus. It is a special place and so proud to be part of the Alumni family. I never... More

What else to say, this University is top notch. At orientation, I actually ran into a couple from Arkansas that was just visiting to visit the campus for enjoyment. They were so impressed as I have been each and everytime that I have stepped on campus. Worth a visit even if not looking for a college.

One of the friendliest campuses I have visited! Everyone on the campus from students, to staff, to professors was extremely helpful. The campus, despite the size, is easy to navigate and the signage is clear and helpful.
