The Office of Student Life welcomes you to The Ohio State University!

Whether you are beginning your college career here at Ohio State’s Columbus campus, making a campus change, transferring from another institution, or resuming your college career after some time away, we are thrilled that you’re part of the Buckeye community!

If you’re looking for information about scheduling an orientation date, the agenda for the orientation program, or other details related to the academic elements coordinated by the Office of the First-Year Experience, head to the University Orientation website.

Departments in the Office of Student Life have pages on their websites to provide important information to new, incoming students. Links to these pages and a few other key resources highlighted in Student Life Orientation sessions can be found here:

Below, you’ll find videos to help you get acclimated to different aspects of life outside the classroom at Ohio State.
