In honor of those glossy folders and the parents with notebooks and high school seniors with a big decision
By Julia | April 30, 2012
Oh, those college tours. The overwhelming amounts of information, but all you really need to know is right here. If you’re torn between here and another school, I dare you. Come to OSU. If you don’t love it, leave (not many people leave). I thought about doing this, and I had a friend who thought about doing this. We’re both still here, and we love it. Our freshman retention rate is RIDICULOUSLY high for a reason. Once people get here, they love it.
If you would like some personal convincing, you can comment and I will let you know why OSU is a great choice for you.
In any case, read on:
If you are a high school senior, you’ve probably already figured out where you are going to college (and if you’re reading this, you’ve probably made the right choice ;) ), but in case you need a bit more convincing, I can be of service.
OSU is what you make it. Do you want it to be big, it can be big! If you want to walk though campus and see tons of people you know, hey, it can be that way too. Do you want to study in a different place every day of the week? of the month? Do you want to eat someplace different on campus each day? Do you want to head downtown? Head to the metroparks? Catch a sports game? It is literally all here.
I also love OSU because it gives credit where credit is due. I took 4 AP tests in high school and got a 4 on all of them. Some schools only give you credit when you get 5′s, some don’t give credit at all!
Because OSU literally has everything, I can take classes in whatever I find interesting (And you can do the same)! I’ve taken boxing, guitar, tumbling, acting, and more, plus I really want to take an American Sign Language class, and an anthropology class. Plus in the fall I’m taking a history of fashion class (!). With the flexibility of OSU, I’m going to graduate in 2014 with a BS in Mechanical Engineering and a BA in Theatre with a minor in Design… at least that is the plan (for those of you not counting, thats 5 years… although I’m taking a couple classes this summer, plus it’s not bad given that the national average time to complete an engineering degree is 4.5 years).
