China Pre-Departure Orientation
Ohio State offers a Pre-Departure Orientation for new Chinese students who have been accepted and have paid their acceptance fee. Pre-Departure Orientation offers an opportunity for future students, and their families, to learn more about college life, meet other Ohio State students and university staff and learn important information before traveling to the United States.
Pre-Departure Orientation is held virtually for students and their families and translation services are provided during the online presentation. Pre-Departure Orientation is a collaboration among the Office of International Affairs, Office of Student Life, Office of Student Academic Success and the China Gateway. Participating in the orientation is a great way to build a foundation for success at Ohio State.

Chinese Culture and Language
The Ohio State campus community engages in Chinese culture and language via an academic department, Area Studies Centers and education abroad programs.
The Undergraduate Research Office and the Office of Research provide numerous opportunities to support research about and in China.
Opportunities for international internships are available through the Fisher College of Business.
The China Gateway helps Ohio State students and alumni explore career opportunities in China and better engage with corporate partners for multifaceted collaborations.
One example of career services includes the China Career Fair that provides a platform to connect employers with Ohio State students and alumni since 2016. In collaboration with dozens of prestigious American Universities’ China offices and more than 100 corporate partners, this event not only benefits our students, but also improves Ohio State’s brand as a global university.
