Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

College Life Rating

The atmosphere at Ohio State is always energized. From seeing a thousand people on the oval in the mornings, to going to a basketball game, this school is a very fun place to be. The clubs I joined are very helpful with my career, but also further my interests. The weekends here are a blast too!
