Student organizations at The Ohio State University provide students with opportunities to get involved in a wide variety of interest areas including academic, social, religious, artistic, service-based, diversity and many more. Over 1,000 registered student organizations involve thousands of students. The university's debate team has won state tournaments several times.
The Office of Student Life is responsible for many of the outside-the-classroom aspects of student life at Ohio State. It has more than 30 departments. Among these are student housing; dining services; health, wellness and counseling offices; the Ohio Union, student activities, organizations and leadership development; recreation and intramurals.
About 90% of undergraduates, masters and graduates are satisfied or somewhat satisfied with their experience at Ohio State.
As a student at Ohio University, there are two options for housing: on-campus housing or off-campus housing.
Ohio State operates 38 on-campus residence halls divided into three geographic clusters: South Campus (site of the university's original dormitories), North Campus (largely constructed during the post-war enrollment boom) and West Campus or "The Towers." Within the residence hall system are 40 smaller living and learning environments defined by social or academic considerations. Ohio State also offers three honors residence halls: Bradley Hall, Lincoln Tower, and Taylor Tower.
Separate housing for graduate and professional students is maintained on the Southern tier of campus within the Gateway Residential Complex and the William H. Hall Student Residential Complex. Family housing is maintained at Buckeye Village at the far northern edge of campus beyond the athletic complex.
The Residence Hall Advisory Council, which is a representative body of all students living in the University's residence halls, helps evaluate and improve the living conditions of the residence halls.
All Ohio's residence halls are furnished with basic amenities which include a bed, desk, chair, and closet. Students will share rooms, bathrooms, and public spaces in residence halls. Most dorms are co-ed, meaning that both men and women will live in the same building.
According to the university’s research, 81% of students feel confident they will find a job in their field after graduation. Indeed, the percentage of students who are working 2 years after graduation is about 92%.
Graduate employment: 92%
