Academic Counseling

An academic/cross-cultural counselor is available to help students who need advice on English study, cross-cultural adjustment, and other questions.

In addition to helping with questions about life and study at Ohio University, our counselor can aid students who want to continue academic work elsewhere to choose the best university or college to meet their needs and interests. Students complete admission applications under the counselor's guidance. OPIE has catalogs from many American universities and colleges to help students select schools.

Cross-cultural Experiences

Many additional opportunities to use English are provided for students as part of the OPIE curriculum. An orientation to American life at an American university is held each term. Throughout the year, the OPIE has a series of extracurricular activities to introduce students to American customs, history, social events, traditions, and holidays. Activities include the American Conversation Partners Program, local tours, films, lectures, dances, sports, and field trips. The Athens Friends of International Students, a volunteer organization of Athens residents, hosts weekly coffee hours and arranges for international students to meet American families.
