As a former player, I am biased toward the quality of the game, but as I transitioned to a spectator, the overall experience, band performance and general atmosphere has become much more of the total event. Ohio State is one of the premier facilities with lots of history and atmosphere. Parking has historically been a challenge until this past season... More

I've been there twice - once in the late 80's and once in the mid 2000's. I learned a lot the first time, got prepared to work, met students from all over the world, and had fun in the process. I came back in the early 2000's, and got an additional license. It was obviously much more expensive, but the... More

Our 8 year old grand daughter enjoyed the girl's basketball game. Brutus was funny, the Buckeyes won, tickets were cheap & close to the court ($11) & parking free & just a short walk. Since the girls scored 80+ points everybody got a free Big Mac certificate.

This school is great, especially on gamedays. The campus is filled with so many smart people, and is very busy. Everyone is friendly

Went to school here in the 80's and much has changed, mostly for the better. My daughter is coming here next year for sports(and school), but I can honestly say she loves this school and campus and would go here even if she wasn't playing a sport. Beautiful grounds, campus, buildings, the oval, etc. what else can you say. The... More

We brought a horse down for canker surgery. The staff and students where fantastic. We were able to actually watch the surgery and recovery. I would recommend to anyone to check out this facility.

The best game I have ever been to! The place was packed with a record setting attendance of over 110,000 fans. Game was riveting and non stop action driven. We could not believe they sold beer here since it was a college stadium but they did which helped keep the fans warm and riled. Definitely would do this again every... More

If your a college football fan there are some stadiums you must visit. The Ohio State Football Stadiums is one of the best in the country. Located right in the middle of the campus that is located right in the middle of Columbus, Ohio

The campus is huge, clean and busy. Went to buy Ohio St items, to visit their Hall of Fame and shop. The Ohio St store had great prices and had some special going. Worth the effort and trip if you are in the area, or like us, going to a game. There are several good restaurants and shopping (campus style)... More
