Your Ohio Options Explored
There are dozens of Ohio universities. Despite being only the 34th largest state in America, Ohio has the seventh highest population.
That's a lot of potential students. Fortunately, between state schools, private colleges, community colleges and technical colleges, there's no shortage of education to be had.
The most well known of all Ohio universities is - perhaps somewhat obviously - Ohio State University. Founded way back in 1870, this research university is one of the top public institutions in America. Students go there for tier one academics, thrilling sports teams, and vibrant diversity. And boy do they go; Ohio State is home to nearly 40,000 undergraduates!
But that's hardly all the schools here have to offer. For those that like more intimate learning environments, there's Franklin University. There are also religious schools (Ohio Dominican University), and a special university for just about every major city in the state.
Here's what my Facebook friend Carrie had to say about going to school in Ohio:
"I'm from Ohio, so it was just the natural decision for me to go to school at Ohio State. It's one of the best Ohio Universities, and I never regretted it even for a little second. I love the school spirit, and I love being near home. Plus, the in state tuition was a major help, and I'm not going to have very big loans when I get out. That's really something to consider. Stay in sate, and you can avoid loans. So I'm happy that I did that."
I though Carrie made some really great points: State schools are cheaper. College loans suck. It's nice to be close to friends and family.
So if you're a young Ohioan, trying to pick a path, carefully consider your state school options. Ohio has plenty to offer.
