I had a scholarship to Northwestern a few years back, never went. I thought they had some sort of wheeling group or club or something or other you could join...?

I would say make sure you have internet, lube and towels, and you may want a wrist support

I lived there for a year. I spent most of it drunk at my house. The place straight up sucks. And keep latex handy, it's STD central station down there.

last i knew, the mall parking lot wednesday nights is the place to be.

best teacher in the school is this guy
http://www.facebook.com/people/Henry...p?id=505867422

don't live in the dorms.
good luck finding a job down there.
if you speed on campus and safety services(campus police) try to pull you over, keep driving, they have no athority off campus.

trains suck.
keep your beer cold.
"the pony keg" doesn't sell kegs.

the lima tuberculosis hospital is in Shawnee and i've heard its fun to visit.

video games are good to bring.

ArcticCat843 and I live there and go to UNOH, it sucks. Plan on going home most weekends, everybody else does.
I don't know what you mean by the mall parking lot, our apartment pretty much looks over the parking lot and I have never seen anything going on.

Yes, the trains suck. They pretty much separate the school from everything, they will make you late. If you go someplace for lunch, watch out for the train stopping on the tracks blocking you from school.


They do have an Offroad club, and a big hill to climb but you can only climb it with the club.

They say the best contraceptive in Lima is a UNOH shirt. Wearing one, girls around you will vanish.



What are you going for? I am doing Auto Tech. and High performance degrees.

Oh yeah, and its a HUGE diesel school. You will see more trucks with stacks (diesel, gas, ford rangers) then anywhere else in the country.
They are also the only University in the country to have its own racetrack, but it kinda sucks.

Steveo lives part-time in Ohio. Maybe you could get together with him and paint some of his shit rifles gay colors and try to sell them on the web. Just make sure he's taking his meds. Without them, he doesn't play well with others.

I lived there for a year and a half. There are some apartments behind the funeral home down the road from the school.

From what I remember down there was being a white male was the best contraceptive.

Some of the best food down there was a the Beer Barrel, it's on the southeast side of the refinery.

Town kinda sucks but the school is awesome. me and chad have only been here liek 3-4 months and we have seen some awesome stuff....Not to many schools you can look out the window and see stock cars doing laps in the parking lot....and not to many that have car lifts in every classroom shop....
What class do you guys have????
I have hipo welding next session.....chad got some stupid business classes but he was trying to get switched into welding with me.....
As far as teachers.....I havent got a bad one yet.....the guy i had last session was kinda boring but was always there when you need help.....otherwise its a pretty laid back environment compared to most schools. I like it alot and am very happy im came here.....
Oh and deff dont live on campus...it will stuck...
