Established in 1870, Ohio State is ranked high among the public universities. Located in Columbus, OSU is one of the larger universities hosting over 58,000 students. The academics are strong matched only by the Buckeye school spirit. Although the school is large, students feel a sense of loyalty and community.
Lunch: Serving incredible BBQ from their food truck, head to Ray Rays. Located in the German Village, Katzinger’s Deli is a sandwich mecca serving Reubens, BLTs and Clubs. Harvest Pizza is the best pizza in town - hands down! Get a taste of living on campus and check out Sloopy’s Diner in the school Union.
Casual: Wolf’s Ridge Brewing is a family owned establishment featuring craft beers and a menu that has something for everyone. For authentic Japanese, head to Kihachi. TILL Dynamic Fare offers a delicious organic menu that supports local farmers. The Sycamore is a favorite neighborhood spot. We hear the Nashville Hot Chicken sandwich is a must order. The Short North district on High Street in the city (about 1 mile from campus) has a great choice of places to eat and drink.
Late Night Snack: Raising Cane’s is a consistent student go-to spot for excellent fried chicken. Open 24 hours a day, get your sugar fix satisfied at Buckeye Donuts, serving 32 varieties of yummy donuts! Graeter’s Ice Cream, famous nationwide for their Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip flavor, is worth the trip! (They ship if you get cravings for it once you get home—and trust us—you will)!
Local Attractions: One of the oldest running markets in Columbus, North Market sells everything from organic produce to jewelry and furniture. During the warmer months on Saturdays, you can visit the farmers market on the outdoor plaza.
