China Gateway to host virtual and in-person Pre-Departure Orientation

The China Gateway office will host three Pre-Departure Orientation (PDO) sessions this year for incoming students from China.

The virtual session will be held online on June 19 featuring speakers representing the offices of International Affairs, Student Academic Success and Student Life. In-person sessions will be held in Shanghai on June 27 and in Beijing on July 3, and students are encouraged to begin connecting with each other. All incoming freshmen, rising sophomores and transfer students and their family members are welcome to attend.

PDO offers an opportunity for future students and their families to learn more about college life, including information about housing, academics and other useful topics. The sessions will also include a Q&A for students and family.  

Registration is exclusive to students who have received the link via their Ohio State email. More information about PDO can be found on the Office of International Affairs website.
