Quality classes with professional instructors. The smaller campus allows for more one-on-one interaction with instructors. Great start-up campus!
Tips for prospective students
Do everything early. Stay in touch with your academic advisor and professors.
Academic Rigor
Some classes are more difficult than others. The academic rigor depends on your aptitude, the instructors' ways of teaching, and class choice.
Food and Dining
Cafeteria is like a normal school's. No fine dining here. Better try your luck at the nearby food places which are way better.
What to do for fun
Plenty of on-campus activities. Lots of clubs, organizations, and groups you can join. Located close to a mall and other fun things to do.
Bang for the buck
Because it is a regional campus, tuition is less expensive.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
We have this weird obelisk thing that doubles as our bell tower.
Great for these types of students

Campus Safety
I have almost always felt safe. As a smaller campus, there's no places for easy crime.

The Ohio's state university of Newark is a great school for first year student. The small classes and the small campus is very comforting for student who is not ready for a big school. The school is quiet and allow students to focus on school rather then parties.
Tips for prospective students
New student coming here will like because they don't know how college work. The speed of a small college is better a big school. the parties is very limited therefor the lack of focus will not affect them.
Academic Rigor
our academic is very personal, because the professor will know you and can help you with anythings you have difficulties you may have. The one on one attention you will receive here will be unlike others the professor will give you all the tools you need to successful. Must student who start here will be more likely to have a higher GPA.
Dorm Life
The dorms depend on who you live. If you can't handle messy room and dirty room i think you should get an apartment. The good about living in the dorms you get to know a lot of people who will be eventually be one of your bestest friend.
Food and Dining
The food varies to what you want to eat. We have about 20 items on the menu, it's never going to be a day when you not going to like anything on the menu.
What to do for fun
For fun we play basketball. every other week we have movies night those are good event to go too. We have a game in which there's pools table a t.v, and video games for any one whose bored.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
most traditions happen on the main campus.
Clubs and Activities
We have every sport except football. Our sprot is pertty good and always go to tourmament. there is always something for you.
Greek Life
At the Newark campus we do not have a Greek life.
Campus Safety
Our campus safety is very good. They do hour routines of driving and patrolling the campus for anything disturbing. I can fairly say that they do their job.

I enjoy being at the school but I always feel as though I am not at the school nearly enough!
Bang for the buck
Since Newark is a regional campus it is $3000 less than the main campus so you get the Ohio State University quality and perks with a cheaper tuition.

Live on campus and join a few activities so you can get the whole college experience. And participate in beat Michigan week.
Great for these types of students

Bang for the buck
OSUN is a small town feel college enabling small classroom sizes and close relationships with your professors. It’s also a great way to get a head start on college without all the stress of big bills. I definitely recommend going here to simply get those pre-req classes out of the way for the first couple of years.

Great for these types of students
The Ohio State University Newark campus is a great choice for students who want to transition smoothly and experience the college life slowly. The campus is certainly smaller than the main campus with each class size on this campus ranging from 15 to 50 people compared to the 50-300 class sizes at main campus. The best part about the smaller classes is that students can get to know the professor and each other. This makes interactions and participating in class easier. In addition to that, it also helps students get answers or help on anything they might be confused about. Overall, I would recommend this campus to students who want a smooth and great experience of the college life in a smaller scale.

The Ohio State University,Newark campus offers part of the same experience and opportunities offered on the columbus campus. The regional campus has a wide range of courses offered for various majors. Overall, the campus is a great way to transition from high school to college due to the small and friendly campus community.
Food and Dining
The Ohio State University Newark campus has a wonderful dining and lunch room. The food hall offers foods made fresh ranging from salads, burgers, burritos and various other freshly made foods. The customer service is absolutely amazing and fast. Overall, the dining experience at the campus food hall is definitely a great one.

OSU Newark is a great school for students who still want the Ohio State education without all of the huge price tags attached to their degree. Even thought the school does not have many degrees that can be finished on campus, there are still plenty of classes available to help complete at least the first few semesters of an undergraduate degree. The small campus and class size is also nice for those who like to know their professors a little more personally, and the quality of the teaching still matches the information taught at the main campus.
Tips for prospective students
When coming to OSU Newark, don't really expect a big party school like the main campus is considered. Most of the students commute to and from school, or live in the apartments that are close by in Newark rather than on the actual campus. Still, a small environment like this is great for those students who are afraid they might get lost in some place bigger like the main campus, and it's the closest branch campus to the Columbus campus, therefore making it easier for students to travel between the two.
Academic Rigor
I believe that OSU Newark lives up to the same standards that the Ohio State University has set. The classes often have matching material from the Columbus campus, and if a student wishes to succeed and excel, they must apply themselves to their studies. The school is still flexible enough to accommodate all sorts of schedules, and being able to talk on a more personal level with teachers is always a help as well.
Dorm Life
I myself do not stay on the dorms, so I cannot give and accurate rating. From what I have heard, the dorms are good for getting to know other students, and the buildings themselves are very clean and well kept as well. If rooming on campus isn't available because of the lack of space, many affordable apartment buildings are available just across the street or only a few minutes down the road from the campus as well.
Food and Dining
Table of Contents, the schools main cafeteria, is home to a great grill, delicious salad bar, and amazing coffee shop. The food all tastes wonderful, and even if it is a little expensive, the pricing really isn't that much different than going to eat at, say, Burger King. The food itself, of course, has a restaurant quality taste, and much more than just burgers on the menu.
What to do for fun
The OSU Newark campus offers a lot of opportunities to meet and get to know other students their on the campus. While the city of Newark isn't much, the proximity to Columbus leaves all sorts of opportunities to take friends out to, as the Newark campus allows everyone to have a car on campus. There are also several sports teams to be joined, for both women and men, and clubs abound.
Bang for the buck
I believe that getting an education should be the top priority on any outgoing high schooler's list, which may seem kind of expensive. At OSU Newark, the pricing is nearly half of what you would pay on the main campus, even if the education is the same. That saves a lot of money, especially if you find cheaper board rather than living on campus.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Personally I haven't seen any weird traditions going around the school, though I do believe they still occur. After all, it is a college, and it is an OSU branch college.
Great for these types of students
This campus is great for students who would rather work towards their schooling than party all the time. It's small environment is good for those who are trying to make a transition from a small high school to a large college, and is great for those wanting to transfer to OSU main campus for larger degrees. The atmosphere at OSU Newark is very easy going, especially with the small size of the campus.
Clubs and Activities
I have seen many fliers for clubs and activities around the school, but personally have not been able to sign up for any. I have friends who are a part of them, though, and enjoy the close atmosphere the smaller clubs tend to bring.
Campus Safety
There have been times, as any busy college student can relate, where napping on campus has been a necessity. At OSU Newark, I have felt safe laying my head to rest anywhere from outside or in the library, or even in my car if I needed to. The security cart rolls around the perimeter every few hours and they are always on call in the office building.
