The question of size frequently arises.  To the best of our
knowledge, the Columbus campus of Ohio State is the largest
single campus in the United States.  Ohio State is not the
largest university -- several others (including City University
of New York and Miami-Dade Community College) which have multiple
locations in one city are larger.  So are others which have
multiple locations within a state, such as the University of
California and the State University of New York.  The list above
includes some of the largest universities which are comparable to
Ohio State in curricula, mission and organization.
