Beautiful welcoming campus. I came here to visit the Cartoon Library and Museum. Ended up walking around the campus a bit and visiting other libraries as well. Don't know much about the school or the student experience and I'm pretty sure Ohio State doesn't rely too much on TripAdvisor to stay in business, but if I were a student again... More

We made a short visit to the campus - very impressive. Great signs to help the first time visitor. The campus defines the area and creates a sense of community. The Ohio State University is a world class institution with a world class campus.

THE OHIE STATE UNIVERSITY is the best college in the state! It has a great campus pretty laid back but they defiantly know when to get down to business! If you have the opportunity you should try to attend one of their football games. Great fun for everyone!

We took the summer event dormitory option during our visit of 4-5 days of an event at the Convention Center. The rooms were clean and adequate for our needs, and the shared bathrooms were more convenient and available than anticipated.The bus service was frequent and the drivers helpful in getting us to our destinations.

The campus itself is probably not of interest to the tourist, because is is the second largest university in the country, and spread over square miles. However, there is always something going on, be it sports, music, drama or whatever.

What an awesome campus! Get on your walking shoes and take a tour of the largest university in America! It is beautiful!!! There are three great places to sit and have breakfast, lunch, or dinner at the Students Union: Woody's...Sloopy's...or the Market Place which is a "food court" concept! We have eaten at all three and would recommend all three!!!... More

We enjoyed our visit to the cartoon collection which covers everything from 18th century political cartoons to modern comic strips, with original cartoons drawn by famous and familiar artists.
