Overall Rating

The campus is beautiful and Athens is a true college town. You can walk everywhere you need to be and have plenty of access to food and entertainment when you are not in class or attending a university sponsored function. I loved college green, the well kept landscapes and the red brick buildings. The students include a good blend from Ohio and other states in the midwest, but I also made many friends from around the USA. It is a fun atmosphere and a place where you need to get involved to get the full experience OU offers.
