Established in 1870, The Ohio State University system consists of a main (Columbus) campus and several regional campuses located elsewhere in the state. The main campus is a comprehensive research institution, with colleges of agriculture, dentistry, law, medicine, and veterinary medicine. Research facilities include a transportation research center, a freshwater laboratory, a supercomputer center, and a polar research center.

Notable landmarks at Ohio State include "The Oval"; a giant, "O" shaped field in the center of campus known for being a popular hangout destination during the warmer months, Mirror Lake, a small pond located in central campus which is most famous for the annual "Mirror Lake Jump" which occurs every year on the Thursday before the Ohio State-Michigan Game which is done to resurrect the spirit of former head coach Woody Hayes; and the Oxley Memorial Library, which stands vigil on the west peak of The Oval.

Ohio State University's mascot is the Buckeye, which, unlike many universities, shares its mascot with no other university in the nation.

And, of course, like Woody Hayes put it, "Muck Fichigan".

The best college and football team ever and is accused by dipshits as being shity. It really is though a great college and has won MANY sports against MANY teams so I don't know what people think they are fucking talking about because they are just losers who are ashamed because they are not as good as us Ohioans. It's football team has beat it's rival, the Michigan Wolverines, 7 TIMES IN A ROW AND COUNTING. If you have any shit to say about Ohio State you can just fuck off cuz you know damn well we are MUCH better than the shit your team gives off.
Damn girl, that Ohio State jersey looks amazing on you. No wonder Michigan always looses to Ohio State.

Ohio State is a party college in Ohio thats known for losing when it matters. In 2007, an IQ test showed that Ohio State's average IQ was 89. It ranked lower than most community colleges.
Hey bro, we just beat Youngstown State and Akron back to back! Lets go get shit faced! Ohio State is awesome, we consistently beat cupcake schools so we can get raped in the national championship!

Overrated school that insist that people put a "The" in front of it when it sucks academically and in all sports.

Florida Fan: Since Ohio State lost so bad against Florida in both the championships for football and basketball, they are officially Florida's bitch.

A university that barely qualifies as higher education, obsessing over a football team that routinely gets embarrassed in early January.
The University of Michigan is 57-43-6 over the Ohio State Penitentiary.

An exceptional University whose top-notch faculty and academics are consistently overshadowed by its over-hyped and over-funded football team.
Burnout "Business" major: Hey, wanna drink with me and my boys before the big game on saturday?

Student that actually studies: What big game?

Burnout "Business" major: WHAT BIG GAME? You're a fucking buckeye, how can you not know that we play Michigan this Saturday!?!? It's like the biggest event of the year!

Student that actually studies: Uhh...right. I'm a Theatre major...there's more to Ohio State than football and booze.
