Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Academics Rating

The classes are a nice size, the campus is small enough to feel comfortable, the workload is hard. I wish that OSU had a full nursing program, but it does not. Therefore I am taking premed classes and getting a bachelors of science and will go somewhere else for Nursing school.

Former Student - Last Attended 2012

Academics Rating

To me it was to difficult with teachers who spoke very bad English especially in Math. They cover all you need and have study groups to help those that struggle. But a lot of profrssors are not real clear especially those who are not fluent in English.
