I have a strong feeling that OSU is most likely the best school in the nation. great academics, great athletics, great people, love the area/location of campus, the ladies are very good looking, night life is great. its the total package.

I played college level football. ND, Florida, Missouri, Stanford, etc. But I must say if you have opportunity to attend a OSU game I recommend attending. The OSU Band is world class and when they dot the I in Ohio it is truly a special event. The stadium is usually full and over 100,000 screaming fans is unique. Plus the OSU football is well coached and is worth watching. Toward the end of the season it can get very cold so dress accordingly.

I was able to join a Junior Open House event. Lots of students and families were present. Beautiful facilities on a large campus.

Having worked at OSU for 30+ years, I can say with some confidence that there is always something going on. Athletics, art exhibitions, cultural displays, scientific and research meetings, music recitals, plays, and the list goes on and on. If you are interested in anything more than just walking around campus (it is huge, so you can spend hours walking), check the University's web page (osu.edu) for current activities. You won't be disappointed. A few words of warning are in order. If you are a football fan, visit the campus on "game day." It's an absolute mad house (in a good way). If you aren't interested in football, steer clear of campus on "game day" for the same reason. Regardless of when you visit, be aware that parking rules are enforced VIGOROUSLY 24/7/365!

You can walk around the campus of Ohio State University for hours it's that big. In the spring and fall months it's extra special with all of the trees and foliage around. Mirror lake is also a delight. There's plenty of places to stop and get ice cream or pick up a snack. It's really a great place to see some old architecture mixed with modern technology and just take in the environment.
