Any parents/students with input on transferring to OSU-Columbus from a regional campus after the first year? My son was admitted to Newark, accepted at Miami in Ohio, Ohio U., University of Cincinnati, etc. Undecided major, leaning to history/teaching track or computer science (bit of a hop). Point is, that he isn’t attending a business school, honors college, etc.
How much is “lost” starting at a regional campus and then making that second transition to the main campus? If admitted to Columbus, there wouldn’t be hesitation on college choice, but having this first year and then having to switch gears the 2nd year is providing some hesitation, coupled with the loss of the larger, social opportunities at a bigger, more traditional campus as a freshman, etc.
Dorm space isn’t guaranteed at Newark and it is too far to commute, also a concern. Not sure of what the off campus housing is like and would appreciate any input from students who attended a regional campus and/or parents whose kids chose this path to OSU on pros/cons, etc.
