Had a chance to visit OSU, primarily to tour the music buildings. The music buildings are the only reason I would give OSU 4 stars. Of all of the buildings I had a chance to see, the two music buildings need the most renovation. But I had a chance to see the football stadium, catch a panoramic view of the... More

Went for a college visit with my son. First impression, SPOTLESS! I could not believe how clean and beautiful the academic campus itself was. The old and new buildings blend together very well with one never overshadowing the other. OSU offers new students just about everything they need to succeed in today's world. We are from Michigan and had visited... More

Both of my children graduated from OSU so I have had the opportunity to see the campus and surrounding area over the last 8 years. During that time, many very impressive buildings have been added in addition to the classic older ones. Beautiful green spaces have been installed and it is lovely to wander around. Academically, OSU offers a wide... More

I had moved away from Columbus over 35 years ago. I was surprised how much OSU had grown. It covered 3 or 4 times as much area. Well-kept and nice place to walk around.

This is a beautiful campus to walk around and explore even if you aren't interested in going to school. I wish when I went to college I would've gone to OSU. I love to walk around and see all of the old architecture mixed with newer buildings. They have plenty of green space to chill with a book and soak... More

Accessible campus well situated in Columbus, kind of like UT in Austin. Wexner Art Center, Glenn School have nice exhibits. Not as colorful since Gordon left. Oh yeah, they have sports too.

We had the opportunity to come for an academic session and it was so worth the time. It was supposed to be an hour, and it ended up being 2 1/2 hours. My daughter was absolutely convinced afterward that she wanted to go to Ohio State University. The campus is absolutely beautiful and I cannot say enough about the Buckeye... More

We drove through the campus and found it to be much more beautiful than what you see from High Street. Old and new buildings mixed together makes it somewhat eclectic. Had it been a bit warmer we would have walked a bit and probably enjoyed it even more.

Considering that the campus is in the heart of the city it was much nicer than expected. I happened to be there in the middle of a weekday and it was bustling with students headed to class so I got a real feel for the campus. Impressive but I don't know that I'd send my kid here. Lots of distractions.
