International Student News

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.

Ohio State is expecting close to 2,100 new international students for autumn semester.
 
To help them prepare and acclimate to life in Columbus and to a university in the United States, the globalengagement team, with the help of student orientation leaders, coordinates a series of events and activities that take place from July 30 - August 24. 
 
Help us welcome the new international students and join us for fun events including group lunches at local spots, shopping, going to sporting events and visiting surrounding neighborhoods.
