I kind of spend a lot of money on gas which stinks. But I rent an apartment on main (campus) and commute to newark. A lot of my OSU friends are jealous and think it's cool that I have an apartment my freshman year. And the drive is not that bad."

Monica Carsey, Freshman

"The Small Classroom sizes are really nice because you can get additional help and the professors are really approachable"
