It was fun to see, in person, where my husband graduated. Historic, friendly, awe-inspiring, easy campus to be on.

Although the campus is in a beautiful setting, the Halloween block party held annually on the campus is CRAZY! I went 1 year with my roommate from Ohio State to visit our mutual friends that attended there, and it ended with policemen on horses shooting rubber bullets into the crowd. Guys were groping girls, people peeing in the street, beer... More

When you walk through the grounds of this beautiful place, you realize it must be easy to fill it with over 50,000 students. I used to be one of them as well as our three kids. It is overwhelming to just see the place located on the Olentangy River. Over 100 years and stilling growing. Go see it.

If you are looking for a neat/beautiful place to walk around this is it. There is a ton to see, and there are a bunch of yummy places to eat over on High St.

We loved the academic aura of the college. Very clean and well maintained. Wish I had more time to visit the halls.

The campus is really pretty. I printed off the OSU Walking Tour from the website and gave my friend a guided tour of the campus. I really liked the Ohio Union. The Oval was cool, reminded me of the quad from one of my old college's I attended. We visited before the game on Saturday so we weren't able to... More

I took my 17 year old to see the campus for possible attendance in 2015. I graduated from a small town campus (Kent) which I loved, but they don't have my sons major (Computer Engineering). I wanted to hate the OSU campus. I though it was an urban campus which would be nasty. I was wrong. Campus kept a college... More

Seemed like a very pretty and fun campus, ran through here on the Columbus Marathon, lots of neat architecture and things to see. Wish I had more time to look around.
