What Students Are Saying

3.97 Average Rating
ohio university deserves a 10 out of 10! the campus and atmosphere here is remarkable. the teachers really want you to succeed and so do your peers.
Amy from Newark, OH
Ohio University is the perfect balance between open-mindedness and work ethic. It creates an atmosphere of fun but through trial and error allows the student to discipline themselves rather than forcing silly or unnecessary rules on the student. It gives the student the opportunities to grow and explore in a safe comfortable environment that prepare them for the working world.
