“Nice campus.”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

It is kind of silly to have Ohio State University on TripAdvisor as a tourist destination. However, if you are in Columbus, you can do worse than visiting the OSU campus. The Oval is great once it is warmer, and full of students playing frisbee, sunbathing etc. Short walk from there takes you to the Mirror Lake, with some great ice cream nearby (you can find the place by giant ice cream cone). Lots of other nice things to see, the new Library and Student Union are nice.

“Felt like a student again...”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

My husband and I visited The Ohio State University on our trip back to Columbus and we so enjoyed our experience at OSU. My husband was on official business with the Chemistry Department and spent the entire day on campus. I dined at Eddie George's Restaurant in the Gateway and enjoyed the feel of being on campus again. The new Ohio Union is amazing!!! Such a great visit!

“Go Buckeyes!”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Went to one of their infamous football games. What a treat. The fans were everywhere in the scarlet and gray regalia and the tailgate parties were everywhere. Living in Ohio one must put a Ohio State University Football Game on their bucket list of things to do. O-H-I-O

“University Visits.”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

I make frequent visits to the growing Wexner Medical Center and find it easy to navigate and well signed. The only problem is parking, not enough and some too far from destination if not feeling well.
