Have been to programs and games, nice set-up, well-designed and executed. Public spaces and food have been good on prior visits. Saw Wisconsin dismantle OSU , great sight lines.

This is a really nice mid size arena (10,000 +/-) there is plenty of parking and it is accessible to the highway (315). OSU plays all of its home basketball games here, but they also have a lot of other events and concerts here. It is always kept up and family friendly.

This is always a great venue for basketball. Spent all day Thursday, Friday and Saturday here. Tali-gated in the parking lot and enjoy girls basketball at other times. The Schott always has good food and reasonably priced for high school state tourney.

Very nice arena. Better than most I have seen for NHL and NBA. Snack prices are pretty low. Parking was free for the Ohio State hockey game. I don't know about other types of events.

Hreat facility to watch Buckeye Hockey. The staff is always really friendly. Snacks are tasty and they run fun promotions. One tip: they only allow beer to be purchased and consumed on the second level. They consider ice level to be a family area. The upsode is that the second level os not as crowded and most of the time... More

My friend and I, along with our 4 adult kids, went to the Schott for my first Bball game there. Loved it, and a great venue for viewing the game, even though our seats weren't the greatest. Bring binoculors if you sit far away to see the game better. Have wanted to go to the Schott for 4 years, and... More

Easy access, plenty of restrooms. The floor can be viewed from any seat. Giant screens give you close up views of the events.
