Loved the beauty of this campus. It is so charming and we fell in love. Hoping to come back again. They were great hosts for the gymnastics meet.

The campus of the Ohio State University is well worth a walk! It has some nice gardens scattered across the campus, and of course plenty of shady trees, some of which I think are buckeyes. The architecture is also interesting, especially Oxley Hall.

Sorry I could not get to the stadium, but this is a tight compact, and somewhat crowded campus because of the 60,000+ students. Classic red brick buildings, a little old school, but traditional. and if you like walking universities, this is a nice stroll.

Not sure if Ross hospital is on or near OSU main campus. If it is Springhill Suites /OSU has free shuttle bus that goes in a three mile radius. Very convenient and great staff with comfortable lodging.
