Most Helpful Review for Ohio University-Main Campus
  • Category: Am learning a lot
  • Review by: Caitlin from Kings Mills, OH
  • 48 out of 49 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.

    I transferred to OU from Marietta College and I believe it was one of the best decisions I've made in my life. I had much anxiety being a minority student on a campus with about 30,000 students but OU offers so many organizations that cater to the needs of students of color. I also love that the campus offers 100+ organizations so getting involved was not difficult at all.

    I have met some of the best and smartest people in just the few short months I have attended Ohio University. There are so many activities available to participate in, from organizations, to clubs, to volleyball games on south beach, and even carnivals. Almost anyone you meet at OU will go out of their way to make sure you succeed and have everything you need, because we're bobcats, it's what we do.

    Ohio University has a beautiful campus and relatively nice people. There is a definitely a strong party culture, but that aspect of OU is just a fraction of many other cultures.

    When many people hear the phrase Ohio University, they automatically tie the phrase party school to it. Actually, OU is a very academic school, and many praise it for it's stress on writing. Communications-related programs are very emphasized here.
