Your education is what you make it.Quite BrightJournalism
Your education is what you make it. For me, Ohio University was a great experience. The people were fun, the journalism program was good, and the extracurricular/student publication experience is what really landed me my first job. The job I found [technical writer/instructional designer) uses a similar set of skills that are needed for journalism. The journalism program can be really easy if you allow it to be, so you must challenge yourself. Having Scripps/OU connections is a great thing, but the university gives you plenty of opportunity for self improvement and skill-building. Don't just half ass your four years with a decent GPA and a leadership position here and there. Really throw yourself into learning and your field. Be very active with your extracurriculars, use those alumni networks for internships, try to go the extra mile for assignments and classes. The top complaints I hear about Scripps are that the programs aren't challenging enough. They are what you want them to be. If you turn in the bare minimum, you retain the bare minimum. OU is an amazing place to receive and education and to have a fantastic social life. Be smart about your years there and don't let the opinions of those that couldn't push themselves deter you.

Political Science department is lead by Dr.Political Science
Political Science department is lead by Dr. Judith Grant who actively targets students with aggressive attempts to defame their character. Fails students within her classes and study abroad trips without substantiation. Does not guide students or staff on research papers. Enjoys in referring students to community standards and being having them expelled. Sick sick person who should not be in a leadership role. Overall, college is run by DUMB people in every office. With less than a70% graduation rate, look elsewhere. This college is not out to educate students. Look elsewhere!!!!

This is such a gorgeous school full ofBrightUndecided
This is such a gorgeous school full of friendly, positive, outgoing individuals. Although we have a reputation as being a party school, it is easy to get involved on campus through other outlets such as clubs. I would suggest getting involved in an academic fraternity, as they offer many volunteer opportunities. Dorm advice: The East Green is by far the best green, and I would suggest picking residence hall with sinks in the dorms. Taking off your makeup/brushing your teeth while other people are showering or using the bathroom just seems gross.
