First Year Experience

Ohio State places special emphasis on your first year on campus. Through research and our own experience, we know that foundations built during this year are key to your success.

First Year Experience (FYE) programs are designed to help you get comfortable on campus, connect with the university, and start to think of Ohio State as home. Take a look around. Get involved. Ask questions. And have a great first year!
