Student Reviews

My experience at OSU
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

The experience at my university was really good, there were so many services and opportunities for students. I would've liked to see more help for first generation students.

Unfulfilled
Anonymous rated 2 out of 5 stars

My experience has not been a satisfying one. It is a federal university and the Academic Staff has been going on periodic strikes therefore putting my education on hold and taking away my rights as an individual.

Freedom
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

It’s a public university and the academic staff is always going on strike thus putting my education on hold. I just want to leave to go further my studies
