Student & Graduate Reviews

4.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2010

I think college is the perfect time to explore all of your options. But I also think it is important that students understand that they are in college for a reason, and that reason is to get their degree. It can be easy to get side tracked, but it feels great to get in and out in four years.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2006

It's a great place to get an education. It has a diverse population. It operates like its own little city.
4.6 out of 5.0

Fun football atmosphere, large campus, great facilities, great engineering professors
3.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2012

I liked the school and the people I met, but I didn't think the quality of education was there. If I had the opportunity to do it over, I would have gone somewhere better known for academics than athletics.
3.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2013

Ohio state was great! It's big but not too big and is very diverse. It offers many opportunities and left me with tons of great memories.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Industrial Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

OSU has always been a world class leader in Industrial Engineering which is taught by many of the icons of the field. They posses a great balance of not only academically talented Professors but also industry experience to better focus the classroom material. However, higher education is not only about time spent in the classroom, but also opportunities to work in the field you are studying during the summers of your junior/senior years. Intern positions all over the world offer their students a chance to work as an intern and observe classroom theory in action. Maybe more importantly is the chance to experience differences in practice in various operational settings.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Optical/Optometric Assistant
Graduation Year: 2019

The Ohio State College of Optometry is truly an amazing program. The faculty and staff are just as supportive as your classmates and future colleagues. Ohio State provides a unique experience for optometry students as it is one of the only programs offering an education along side all of the benefits a large university. The small class size and busy clinic enable students to have a unique and personalized experience. It is an environment that promotes personal and professional growth everyday embodying the university's motto: How firm thy friendship.
4.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Fitness Trainer
Graduation Year: 2018

The Ohio State University College of Human Ecology is a phenomenal foundation for higher education in enhancing human wellbeing through focus of physical activity and nutrition. I had the opportunity to meet with Dr. J.V., currently my mentor, and the team foundation of the Kinesiology Department and was welcomed with open arms. The advisors have been by my side since the beginning and have conducted my Path of Practice appropriately for my individual journey. I have learned a great deal through my curriculum and even more through each team member's specific research. I would fully endorse The Ohio State University's College of Human Ecology to anyone wishing to further there expertise in the field of exercise science.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

OSU has a great Social Work Masters program, the instructors are usually great and care about the subject and students. They could use more clas options. The university itself can be a bit overwhelming since it is a huge institution and students have to find out things on their own most of the time. Overal, if you are looking for an affordable program in a large university I would recommend it.
