The Office of International Affairs along with Student Life’s University Dining Services and international student organizations have made Taste of OSU one of Ohio State’s most popular events for 22 years! Taste of OSU 2019 will be held on Friday, February 15, 2019 from 5 – 9 p.m. in the Ohio Union.

Taste of OSU is an evening of cultural exchange through international cuisine and the performing arts. More than 50 organizations participated last year by preparing food, performing on stage or displaying a cultural booth.

Taste of OSU is a great opportunity for student organizations to share their cultural backgrounds with the Ohio State community.

Applications are now open to international and cultural student organizations to participate in Taste of OSU 2019. Visit go.osu.edu/TasteofOSU2019 for more information. Applications will close on November 2 at midnight.

All international undergraduate students are invited to enroll in a newly developed seven-week course for autumn semester 2018, ESEPSY 2060: Academic Success Strategies for International Students (class number: 35953; session 2; TuTh 12:45 – 2:05 p.m.; Younkin 220). 

The course is designed to help international students adapt to U.S. academic culture and practice skills (e.g., communicating with instructors, class participation, source citation, time management, active learning) needed for success in Ohio State classrooms. Students will also become familiar with a wide variety of campus resources.

The two-credit hour course will be offered during the second seven-week session of autumn 2018, and again for the first seven-week session of spring 2019. The instructor has many years of experience working with international students and with teaching study skills. 

Students may contact Caroline Omolesky, international student academic liaison at the Office of International Affairs with any questions.
