Student Reviews

Bigger is Better
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars
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.
Good for Academics
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars
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.
A place to easily get lost in.
Chelsea Pottle rated 3 out of 5 stars
My time at The Ohio State University has not been the best. The sheer amount of students and staff cause a huge amount of disorganization. If something isn't automated, it'll take moths to finish, if they get back to you at all. in addition, classes with over 60 people lose it's attractiveness. It's such a mess here sometimes.
