This is now the fourth time I've been to a major political rally here on campus. OSU is a major venue for important people from Nobel prize winners to Cardinals to Presidents and prospective presidents.

Granted, I graduated from OSU and have a penchant for my alma mater, but it isn't the same place it was in the 80's. Back then it had more of a vibe or I'm just mising the dirty High Street that had a scene instead of the mall-like places that exist near 11th and High these days. The campus has... More

We checked out the new Student Union, Mirror Lake, The Oval. So much energy being on the campus of The Ohio State University. Bring your walking shoes. If you get lost, just ask a student to point you in the right direction.

We stopped in on a nice day to walk the campus. It was my first visit since spending 4 years here myself. The campus is as beautiful as ever. There are lots of shops and restaurants to visit up and down High Street.

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!
