As an out-of-state student, I barely knew anything about OSU before committing. Turns out, it has everything I could want and more! For a public university, it has demanding academics and high standards, and some really accomplished faculty as well. The social scene is so much fun as well! Between football weekends, nights spent with friends, and on campus events, there's always something to do. I absolutely love it here and couldn't imagine being anywhere else!
