Future Ohio State student:
What made you want to look into Ohio State University? -“I’ve always been interested in Ohio State and the reputation it has. Additionally, I have always enjoyed Columbus and was interested in going to school at a large metropolitan university. It only made sense to choose OSU.”
What did you do on your visit? -“We were given an introduction, then toured the campus, the dorms, and other facilities.”
Specifically, what did you like and dislike about the school? -“I can’t think of much that I disliked about Ohio State. I liked the grand size of it, and the feeling as though the University itself is like a small city. Even though you know almost no one, you feel as though you are connected to them because everyone is a Buckeye. The facilities are convenient and extremely impressive, as they have their own transit system, large athletic and fitness facilities, and more books in their library than one could read in their lifetime. It literally makes the possibilities endless and being bored and impossibility.”
The Ohio State University, although a big school, has a very warm, proud, and welcoming community and is an excellent option for graduates.
