Most Helpful Review for Ohio University-Main Campus
  • Category: Am learning a lot
  • Review by: Caitlin from Kings Mills, OH
  • 46 out of 47 people found this review helpful

I learned a lot during my first year at Ohio University. However, most of what I learned came from being outside of class because the classes themselves just serve to introduce and provide overviews of the courses. First year students typically are taking the general education tier requirements and a lot of the information will be similar to what was learned in high school.
