    Ohio University is a really great school. The people are nice and once you're there you will not want to leave. OU is probably the only school you actually will look forward to going back once your breaks are over. OU IS UTOPIA. Once again, not exaggerating.

    Ohio University has proven to me again and again how it is worth absolutely every penny. It is a place of amazing school spirit that makes every feel as if they've found a second family there.

    Besides tuition being on the low end, the options for food and drinks are also very cheap as well! One of the most popular events would have to be Slice Night at Courtside Pizza every Wednesday. Slices of pizza starting at only 50 cents! There are always different performers coming to the university as well, and tickets are always priced low to accommodate college students.

    A well-priced education and area! It's relatively easy for students to survive and strive at Ohio Un. and in Athens! The experience pays for itself which the memories OU will lend to you and the educational and life-skills you gain while being there!
