Global Buckeye CelebrationThe Global Buckeye Celebration will celebrate the arrival of more than 2,000 new international students to Ohio State!

On Friday, August 22, from 5 - 7 p.m., join us at the RPAC Larkins Outdoor Plaza for pizza, games, prizes and more as we welcome these new students to campus and get ready for the beginning of autumn semester.

Orientation LeadersPreparing for the arrival of about 1,700 new international students is no easy task. But over the last few weeks Orientation Leaders with the Office of International Affairs have been busy learning the ins and outs of Check-in and Orientation and they are ready to welcome our newest Buckeyes to Ohio State.

As new international students begin arriving in early August, our Orientation Leaders share their thoughts on how new students can make the most of their Ohio State experience.
