| Subject matter is interesting and facilities are great. Some teaching faculty genuinely care about students and are so helpful. I am thankful for these instructors. Biggest issue is the leadership and administration attitudes and policies. |
Some nursing faculty are very discouraging in the manner they communicate with students. New nursing students are lectured at and spoken to as if they are children and not responsible adults. There is not a feeling that this is student-centered program and about student success, but rather about the program itself and what the faculty prefers and wants it to be.
Scheduling is extremely inflexible. And faculty do not seem to care that you have to work to make a living outside of the nursing program. New students are told that nursing program should be their number one priority no matter what and this isn't open to the reality of many students lives. Particularly non-traditional students who may have families or need to work to live and make ends meet, among commuting to school, etc. Concerning commuting, classes are scheduled so unnecessarily early as to make commuter driving safety an issue. Faculty have stated that they do not consider commuting time and thus, commuting students in their decision-making. This and the fact that you have no say in your schedule, should really be advertised prior to admittance into the program. As some students do require a school that can work with them within the structure and limits of the system of course.
Some faculty do not seem professional in discussing other students with other faculty members. An instructor also passive aggressively said that students were not working hard enough and "getting" it in class and that her teaching was not at fault.
Scheduling is done very last minute.
They are not a very seasoned nursing school, so perhaps they feel they have a lot to prove, I don't know. But leadership needs some improvement for sure. Other than that, great potential for a nursing program and located at a great school and campus!

| OU is the best decision I've ever made. It was my last pick for a college and then I toured and enrolled and now I love it. Yeah, we're a party school, but that does not mean you HAVE to party. There are plenty of weekends I've gone without drinking. Don't feel like you're pressured to drink. Though I enjoy the party scene its not always necessary and I don't drink every weekend. |
There's a lot to do here if you look for it. Not everything is about alcohol. The administrations office is annoying but they always come through and never really try to screw you over, they just typically lose track with a lot of the paper work, but they never actually lose your paper work.
I even went Greek, which is not easy at most colleges. The greek life here is small but very fun if you engage yourself in it. Don't assume all greeks are the same.
Scenery is beautiful here. Lots of OU Pride these days. I love the program here and feel I'm getting a great education here.
Find your place, work hard and enjoy your time here and you'll really get everything you want out of your college experience. Athens is such a beautifully art-imbedded town. People here are happy and could not be more proud to say they graduated here.

| If you dont like Ohio University, its because you haven't come here. The campus is beautiful. We have several top notch fields, our sports teams are great, and the atmosphere is just amazing. If i could have gone to any school and do it all over again, NO WAY would I call anywhere but Athens home. |
