Overall, OSU has been amazing. Professors truly care, classes are interesting, and there’s a great sense of community. Sometimes all the options available can be overwhelming, but there aren’t plenty of resources to help navigate. I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else.
I love Ohio State! It's given me a ton of opportunities and I'm only half way through. It's a very large school, but there is so much to get involved in that you can make it feel small. I feel like I'm part of a really special community.
Ohio State has a lot to offer as far as academics, but if you're not into greek life or the football scene, it's easy to feel left out.
