He cares more about Academic Success than the average student.
Major: Journalism (This Major's Salary over time)
Everything about this entire school is mediocre: the professors are OK, the social scene is OK, the career goals everyone has are ok. Its a very mediocre school. I know that means my ratings should reflect on average, but they don't because I feel like the school could be much, much better then they are.

There is a sense of defeat among the students at OWU. They are run by and trampled by the administration, yet too unorganized to actually do anything about it.

For example, the overwhelming majority of students want to party and have fun, but the school is cracking down even harder on it.

Another example: The food is terrible--almost everyone here agrees, yet not enough students are nagging the administration.

The sentiment of the administration here is to wait for a very, very, very, significant amount of complaints about something before they actually do anything about it rather then keeping the campus well maintained or foreseeing problems.

The administration generally ignores the wants, concerns, and needs of the student body.

I would NOT recommend enrolling here.
