College Life Rating

There is something for everyone to get involved in at OU. I was part of a business fraternity, social sorority and numerous intramural athletic teams. It was also a great school for avid sports fans. Most of the competitive sports were enjoyable and when the football team wasn't performing, at least you had a 1st class Ohio University Marching 110 band to entertain you.
