“Home of the Buckeyes!”
The Ohio State University’s main Columbus campus is one of America’s largest and most comprehensive. More than 55,000 students select from 14 colleges, 175 undergraduate majors, and 240 master’s, doctoral, and professional degree programs. As Ohio’s best and one of the nation’s top-20 public universities, Ohio State is further recognized by a top-rated academic medical center and a premier cancer hospital and research center. The university’s total research expenditures in 2009 topped $716 million, ranking Ohio State 13th nationally, second in industry research, and ninth among public universities, according to the National Science Foundation. The university’s innovative prowess attains world-class status, particularly in critical areas such as global climate change, cancer, infectious disease, advanced materials, and ag-bio products that feed and fuel the world. An additional 8,200 students attend Ohio State’s regional campuses in Lima, Mansfield, Marion, and Newark, and the Agricultural Technical Institute in Wooster. Founded as a federal land-grant institution in 1870, the university has awarded 622,368 degrees since 1878. Its legacy extends to more than 465,000 living alumni.
Beautiful campus, huge, but historic. You can feel the traditions and history as you walk around the school boasting 50k+ students. Most every building that I saw was named after a famous alumni donor stemming back to the cult-like following of alumni this university produces. Be sure to check out Mirror Lake, the incredibly world-class recreation centers, and more. Given that it is Ohio, plan to go when the weather is warm and nice or the size of the campus will be overly cumbersome.
