The Main Campus of Ohio State is Big. It's one of the largest institutions in the country and its academics are highly rated across many fronts. The university has a great nightlife mainly through the bustling High Street venues. There is easy access to hotels if you are doing a college visit and it's close to downtown which is revitalized...

The Ohio State University offers a beautiful campus that minds of all intelligence levels flock to enroll. The night life surrounding the campus is seething with new experiences around every corner! I hope someday my daughter will attend!

I visited Ohio State University in summer vacation, the campus is very nice, with bigs green areas. The problem that I had were the distances, because the bus service were off because the vacation and the distance on foot between places were very far, also for the summer vacation the campus were basically "dead", zero activities.

While parts of the campus are quite nice, such as the “The Oval” designed by the famous landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted (Central Park among many others) and the area around Mirror Lake, the campus is very large and poorly laid out in a number of ways. Touring the campus with a guide from admissions as my daughter was contemplating... More

Every time that I go to my boyfriend`s house I have to see this incredible university. I went there and it`s so amazing. Many students are there and we can have a lot of fun with activities in that school.

Our first stop on a 6-university tour over fall break We saw some top-notch facilities and a beautiful campus that overall, just felt too spread out to have a close-knit community feel. Still, loved the wide variety of old-growth trees and a good mix of historical and modern buildings. Caught a glimpse of the marching band assembled outside the stadium,... More

Took a campus visit to Ohio State with my daughter. Beautiful campus, lots to see and do. Visited the Ohio Union, Library, and classrooms. All very impressive. Also toured the Wexner Center for the Arts, they have a world class exhibit hall.

The weather did not cooperate, but the visit was still memorable! The tailgate watch party was a lot of fun - and the campus is beautiful. Breakfast at Sloopys was a nice way to start the day!
