Welcome New Buckeyes

Ohio State's University Orientation will be your first real taste of life as a Buckeye. Orientation will help you begin to feel at home on the Columbus campus and help you become familiar with the wide range of academic opportunities available at Ohio State.

Orientation information varies between freshman and transfer students and is specific for the term in which you are enrolling. Please choose links above that are appropriate for you. Non-traditional freshmen (students ages 21 years and above) are invited to attend transfer programs.
