ohio univ-athens or univ of dayton??

<p>Ok im pretty set on one of these two schools (mainly ohio univ) and i was just wondering if any graduates or parents of graduates can give me some info... i would like info about how good your job choices were after graduation (include major) and other experiences at or with the university that you feel need mentioning</p>

<p>OU hands down. Campus is stunning. Their job stats @ OU are 94% are employed within 6 months of graduation which is awesome.</p>

<p>Two very different places, and at each you can get a good education, and at each you'll have to keep yourself focused on educaton and away from too much fun. I have family members who have graduated from OU and UD.</p>

<p>If you've visited both, and like both, I'd say go to the one that makes you a better financial offer.</p>

<p>b.... u.... m.... p</p>

<p>Do you like a smaller/urban school or a larger/rural school? Is highway/airport access important to you? Do you want a Catholic school or a state school? What about the strength of your proposed major at both schools? Besides the $, these might be factors that help you decide. I know a bunch of UD grads--doctors, accountants, engineers, etc. My impression is that the faculty/staff are very helpful there--you might get more personal attention since it is a smaller school. I'm sure you can get an excellent education at either one, and find a good job if you do well. Just think about which atmosphere you prefer.</p>

<p>yea ive actually been to both schools i dont really care about if its urban or rural and you can get great attention at both schools... my major isnt completely decided but i know it will be one of the sciences and both schools are decent.... hence the problem i love both schools .. right now im leading towards ohio u simply b/c i love athens but i just wanted to hear some personal experiences (kinda hard to get advice on non-ivy schools on cc)</p>

<p>If you love Athens, go to OU. When my daughter was a freshman there, she had a dorm room in Biddle Hall, which was designated as one of the "academic emphasis" dorms. She liked that. . . it wasn't particularly quiet, but she was with other students who were fairly serious about their studies. Sophomore year she lived in Bromley Hall, a dorm that used to be a hotel till OU bought and converted it to dorms. It's a kind of odd dorm, and she wouldn't recommend it. </p>

<p>As far as sciences. . . . one of her roommates was bio major, and is now a grad student in public health at OSU. Another friend is an Elec. Engineering grad, who's starting grad school at OU in December.</p>

<p>yea... i stayed in bromley over the summer it was rather weird but i loved the heated indoor pool and its pretty close to everything... thanks for the help</p>

<p>Thanks very much. It's interesting to hear about other schools.</p>
