When classes moved online after spring break, it was a huge adjustment for everyone. Most of my professors did a really good job with the adjustment and the university was very straightforward with giving students information and providing a partial refund.

"At first, I was nervous about how large the student..."

At first, I was nervous about how large the student body is at OSU, but I quickly came to love the community on campus and how diverse you can make your experience at the university. I was also disappointed at first that I ended up at OSU because I had my sights set on MIT or Stanford when applying for colleges, but after my first year here, I love Ohio State and I'm proud to call it home. I was put in Lincoln Tower for my first year, and I hated it but if I could go back in time I would not change my dorm situation. Living in a 16-person suite was stressful at times, but the friends I made in Lincoln are forever and without them, I would not have had the amazing first year experience that I did. For any prospective physics or engineering physics majors who took the AP Physics C tests, I would recommend taking Physics 1250H and 1251H your freshman year. I did and I learned so much and gained so many incredible friends from my physics class that will be with me for the next 4 years.

"The colleges officials don’t listen"

The colleges officials don’t listen. I felt like I was at a clique rather than a professional institution.

"I was initially excited to finish a bachelor’s degree..."

I was initially excited to finish a bachelor’s degree at OSU but that changed. A class(Disability Studies which counts as an English credit) is the reason I am transferring from Ohio State University and I do not recommend this class or college for students pursuing the English major. Starting with the professor, my problem started with a group project in early March. One of my group members complained about work load discrepancies. The professor responded by sending me a message(during spring break) asking about specifically my participation. To clarify, the message was not written in a manner that was open to the possibility that I, myself, may have found an issue with my group members. The professor did not approach the problem with any degree of neutrality and then closed the case of my grade the first day the school opened after spring break. The college officials were too busy defending and being buddies with the professor that they wouldn’t listen to anything.

Online learning has not been too stressful because of how gracefully professors have adapted to the transition.

"A very big, diverse campus"

A very big, diverse campus. The professors are very helpful and if you put in the effort and ask for help when needed, you’ll succeed in you classes. Campus food is subpar. The gyms are fantastic and you will find a wide range of activities to do on campus. I would recommend this university to anyone. Go bucks!

The classes I had online were very good! The professors gave lots of information and answered emails, texts, and phone calls! I would suggest it taking an online class if you aren’t an organize individual or need to see a teacher face to face.
