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.

It was a great experience for being one of the buckeyes. One of the biggest campus on earth and I am one of them. Now, I can tell the stories to my family members and friends about the campus and still going on. It has been 10 years after graduation. Time so fast and I am missing my time there... More

There are two kinds of reviews here - the alumni/students and everyone else. As someone not affiliated with the school I might have a more objective view. Lots of pluses here - lots of choices for the students, excellent rec center, great cycling/walking access to the Olentangy river path. On the other side, it has a bit of a huge... More

We have a lot of history with O.S.U. We graduated there as well as family and friends. It's a campus worth touring! Be sure to check out the Student Union, Rpack, William Oxley Thompson Library ....and of course the OSU football stadium!

Enough Said! Outstanding University. Loved seeing "The Horseshoe". Truly a magnificent place. Loved seeing the students around the campus, the restaurants, coffee shops, libraries and of course the football stadium

The Big Ten Vibe of this school is contagious. Went when the students were in class and it made me want to go back to school. The campus is beautiful and you'd never guess that it's in the middle of a vibrant city.
