Why I Chose Ohio University

Choosing colleges for me was pretty easy for me because I knew what I was looking for. I’m a journalism major, so going to a school that has a good program was important to me. Ohio University was very high on my list for a few reasons. I had gone to the Scripps School of Journalism camp, which helped high school students gain experience in journalism. I loved the experience, and I fell in love with the campus right away. 

I had a list of my top 5 colleges, and Ohio University was on the list. Admittedly, for a time, I was torn between DePaul and Ohio University. However, I just fell in love with the campus and the people. Everyone was so nice, the people just made me feel at home. I would walk around during tours, and it felt normal for me. Ohio’s campus is very beautiful as well, and the scenery is something I love looking at. 


It was important for me to get a good education. I knew that the journalism program would give me great opportunities to learn. I know that for a fact now because I have taken several journalism courses. They have helped me grow so much in so little time, but I always feel like there’s more to learn. The education here has really helped me expand my mind and become much more knowledgeable.

Now, as a sophomore at Ohio University, I feel like I’m at home. I have made so many amazing friends and had so many incredible experiences here. I just don’t think I could see myself anywhere else, honestly. I feel there’s a type of experience you get here, unlike any other. I’m just grateful I picked Ohio University because it has become my home for me!
