The math department of OSU provides a friendly environment for graduate student. They have well organized administration and facilities support. Strong areas include Topology, number theory, ergodic theory, math bio, and others. The main campus in The city of Columbus has a fancy sport center and of course the home stadium of OSU football team.

Great pedagogical support for new GTA's; excellent professionalization and job prep for those going on the job market; wonderful support from faculty and other grad students; competitive yet friendly; and situated in a very livable city and department. Basically, best place to do your PhD!
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

Ohio State is one of the top-rated programs in the country. The College of Public Health has professors that have worked in the field and are very knowledgeable about their respective areas of teaching. As a top research institute, there are many chances for students to get involved in research projects in a variety of public health topics. The small size of each cohort ensures students constantly work together and know each other very well. The student life of both the CPH and the university in general is very lively.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Dentistry
Graduation Year: 2019

I feel that my program is very competitive to get into but once you are in you are treated like family. The professors want you to succeed so they are always available to assist you in educational and personal needs if needed. I feel that the course load is strenuous but it makes for a better professional.
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The workload associated with the Msw program is doable, however the internship requirements are extremely time consuming for someone who already has a full time job. The second year internship requires 24 hours a week for two semesters, which is a great learning experience, but is overwhelming.
