What impressed you positively?

"Everything: the facilities were top-notch, low housing costs, students seemed down-to-earth and friendly, and the tour guides were very willing to not only show us the required areas (labs, classrooms) but also took us through the rec center and other places... delivered a positive message that we will actually have a life--at least somewhat--during our time at OSU."
