| 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. |

| I love most things about OU, but there is one thing everyone considering this school should be aware of. At the moment, OU is the third most expensive public university in Ohio. That would be fine if that money was being spent wisely, but the perception among students, including myself, is that there is much waste. Before enrolling, be sure to research the OU budget to see where your hard earned dollars will go. If I had to do it all over, I would probably still go here, because I love my department. I am not impressed, however, with the University's tuition hikes, administrative pay raises, and wasted general fee funds while buildings are in dire need to upgrades and maintenance and students are racking up mountains of debt. |
