What Students Are Saying

4.14 Average Rating
Ohio State is it's own small world. Once you get involved, which is a must, you cannot walk across campus without seeing someone you know. From academics to sports, Ohio State is an excellent school with long standing tradition.
Amarilis from Newbury, OH
The Ohio State University is a place with endless opportunities for any student in any major. Our diversity, campus atmosphere, traditions, and Buckeye pride will make you feel like a part of something much bigger than yourself. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
