“Top notch. If you're in the area, take a tour of the campus”

Ohio State University

If you live in Columbus, Ohio, you're probably a fan of The Ohio State University, not only for what the university offers to students, but also for what OSU has done for Columbus at large. One of the best universities in the nation, it has a sprawling campus that starts just north of the Short North district on North High Street. Drive up North High until you get to the main campus, turn left (around 17th) and then wander. You'll love the Oval, Mirror Lake, and the newly refurbished library. Continue west to see the Horseshoe, the Buckeye's legendary football stadium. Stop by the new student union for lunch. And then cross over the beautiful Lane Avenue bridge as you head for the Schott (basketball arena), the football practice fields, the Jesse Owens track, baseball stadium, etc. It's a fun tour, worth your while if you've never been there.

OSU is a wonderful university! As large as it is, the university works very hard to make each student feel a part of a group. You can make a huge university feel more manageable by the efforts they make to involve the students. The quality of the education is excellent and OSU is known nationally as a top learning center for several specialties.

Ohio State is such a beautiful place to visit. The Oval is the picturesque college campus area with a huge lawn, trees, students playing frisbee, and beautiful buildings surrounding it. Besides the Oval, the Thompson Library, RPAC, Ohio Union, Ohio Stadium, and Mirror Lake are must-sees!

Wow, if I had it to do again, I'd look into attending OSU for something medical. What learning labs they have! We were allowed to see the labs where medical students learn. Amazing. The educators were very informative and welcoming. We also saw the ICU and ER.

It is my school and my children's... Wonderful institution and a great place to visit and walk around. The Oval is beautiful. Mirror Lake is great... If you happen to be in Columbus, it is worth the visit...
