I did not attend OSU, but live in Columbus and have of course been to the Shoe to see a couple of games. Reportedly, this is the largest school in the country based on students, and the campus is huge to accommodate. But the school has done a great job with keeping their campus, and the surrounding neighborhoods looking good.

I attended the Ohio State/Cincinnati game. All I can say is WOW. The OSU fans come out for their football. The announced attendance for the game was 100K plus and I bet there was another 50K outside tailgating. Nice experience, nice stadium, and nice campus. If you get the chance to attend a game there I would recommend you do... More

A couple miles north of downtown Columbus on High Street is The Ohio State University. As we were coming back from the Columbus Zoo, we decided to drive around the campus to check it out and made a couple of stops along the way (we had to pop into the hockey arena to buy an OSU hockey jersey and puck)....

Amazing how this urban campus just melts right into the city. The grounds are beautiful, and the sports are abundant! You can always see something every weekend. Their theatre program puts one some great theatre!

I have not studied on this University, just visited colleagues who does. Compared to the University I was in it looks like way much better place to study. All the infrastructure looks well planned and organized.

OSU campus is a must visit if you are in Columbus. Close to downtown and the Short North the campus area has everything. The Horseshoe Stadium home of the Ohio State Buckeyes, The Schottenstien Center home of the OSU Basketball Team, Jack Nicklaus Golf Museum. Dozens of Bars and restaurants along North High Street.

A trip to Columbus isn't complete without a visit to the Horseshoe! Impressive. Even though this is a city school, the abundance of trees and open park areas add to the beauty. The varieties of architecture add visual interest to the campus. So much to see and take in at OSU and nearby Short North!

The university is everything it's pretentious name implies, THE Ohio State University. Right in the center of campus you fine huge trees and walkways that can lead you to mirror lake . The grounds in spring and summer are landscaped to soften the many buildings. All kinds of architecture can be found on campus. Make sure you visit the Student... More
