We went in August 2022 and stayed at the Residence Inn Downtown Columbus. Loved it and would stay again. We drove so had our car. After check in we took the highway to campus but once we figured out location, we took N. High from the hotel to get to campus and felt that gave us a bigger view of the neighborhood surrounding campus.

We had ice cream from Jeni’s and went to Dirty Franks on S.4th(well known hot dog spot). We are big shoppers so made a couple of visits to Easton Town Center and ate at Rusty Bucket and Brio. Also had Waffle House on High St. across from campus.

Parking was easy, we did street parking or garage on campus. We were there around moving day so campus was just picking up with activity.

We did see raccoons coming out of the gutter and some homeless sleeping on the law school steps and benches. I was surprised by the actual size of campus. We were able to go in the stadium—huge and nice looking. The student center was a really nice size and can tell it’s a happening spot.
