Most Helpful Review for Ohio University-Main Campus

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.

    As an Ohio University student I have come to realize that home is where your family is, and as a student it has become evident the meaning of family can become more than one thing. From your first day on campus you are greeted with hellos and smiles that welcome you to your new home away from home. The best part about attending OU is that you get a whole new diverse family of academic minds with open minds and arms who challenge you to your best version of yourself.

    Ohio University is a great school that allows students to grow considering majority of the school lives on campus. Without the distractions of city life, students learn to create close bonds with their peers through their classwork, organizations, and social activities. Do not let the location interfere with thoughts on the school. Every student here loves it and visits frequently after graduation, there is no place like Athens, Ohio.

    Ohio University is a free spirited school. They make opportunities for their students and do a great job preparing their students for the future. Given the opportunity, I would attend here again because I honestly consider this the best town and school in the world.

    OU is a gorgeous school and although it is quite a large school, it has a small school feel.
