As classes begin…some advice from our advisors!

Advice for students…

Advice for parents and family members…

  • Think about limiting phone calls, emails and text messages to your student…this is their time to become more independent, connect with their peers, and learn the college ropes.
  • Educate yourself about student resources on campus so that if your student needs support you know what’s available and can suggest they use the resources.
  • If you are scheduling your student’s trip home for break, be sure to check out our academic calendars for important dates.
  • Check out our OSU family/parent website.
  • While your student is gone, learn games like Rock Band…a fun way to re-connect during term breaks!
