Finding friends and making connections are an integral part of your collegiate experience. Research has shown that students who feel a strong sense of belonging i.e. feel welcomed, accepted, and valued for who they are, tend to perform better academically, report higher levels of well-being, and have higher levels of motivation.
There are several ways you can make new friends and connections at OSU:
- Join a student organization (or start a new one) - Look to the left for student organizations affliated with CFAES
- Attend campus events (CFAES Back-to-School Bash, OUAB sponsored events)
- Talk to your classmates
- Attend sporting events
