A lot going on for a Saturday in the summer. Stopped by because 14 year old daughter is interested in one of their programs. Those OSU folks we encountered were very helpful and friendly. Wandered around with a map provided at the Ohio Union. Public parking available close by for a fee. Lots of places to eat nearby. Good school... More

As soon as I stepped on campus many moons ago, I knew this is where I wanted to get my education. Eight years and two degrees later, I still enjoy every visit back to walk on the oval, cruise High Street, go to a game, or just walk among the students. And now, my son is a student and this... More

Wonderful University! Although large, easy to navigate and beautiful! Has so much to offer both in academics, research, and outside activities.

This place is huge. Somehow we managed to walk right into the football stadium without being stopped, so we got to have a good look around. Very interesting if you are from overseas and want the full impressive look at a US college campus.

The quad is still as beautiful as it ever was. Always fun to go back and walk through the old buildings. Love what Columbus is doing to the Olentangy. A few restaurants on High have changed by the atmosphere is the same. We'll be back, of course.

The campus is easily accessed from all directions. You can get it of of North High street as well as coming of Route 315 at the Lane Ave exit. There is lots to see but check out the Oval. If you don't know what the Oval is just ask someone and they can point you too it.

I graduated from Ohio Stae University in 1982 and had not been back since then, I was not just surprised about how much construction and new amazing buildings the University has now, but also about ou harmonic the whole thing continues to be. It is a city within a city, it has lost some of its charm but has turn... More
