From the shores of Lake Erie to the bluegrass plains along the Ohio River, the Buckeye State offers its students a great place to live. Nightlife is hopping in college towns like Columbus and in bustling cities like Cincinnati and Cleveland.

College life is demanding, but you won't miss out on fun.
