I love Ohio University! It is in a very safe and beautiful location. There is a small-town lifestyle but with plenty to see and do.

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.
