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.

Having attended three universities in the North East, I feel I have some basis of comparison when evaluating universities. As a father of two children, my son went south to a university and my daughter went to the Midwest, specifically The Ohio State University. Choosing a university for my kids allowed me to see another sixteen universities and compare. The... More

Great old Historic buildings, huge trees, along with newer buildings. If you are in the area, go down and enjoy the homecoming parade and the Pep Rally afterwards. OH-IO

We always take guest and drive through the OSU campus so they can appreciate the size and the many different architecture styles.

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
