Student Services



The Russ College works closely with Ohio University’s Office of Multicultural Student Access and Retention (OMSAR) to give multicultural engineering students additional support and mentoring services.

Our programs assist first-year students with academic and social transitional issues, including informal mentoring, and we recommend seeking academic services offered through the Academic Advancement Center. OMSAR serves as a clearinghouse for university resources for advising, transitional issues and academic issues for multicultural students.
