Ohio University

A&S Student Success & Support Services

You were admitted to Ohio University because you have the ability to succeed. The transition from high school to college or even from another college to Ohio University can often be challenging. Advisers in the College of Arts & Sciences' Undergraduate Student Affairs Office hope you find these suggestions beneficial to your own strategy for success.

For most students, being academically successful requires a great deal of time and effort. You might consider it your full-time job. Learning from your mistakes (and we all make them) is a part of the educational experience. You are encouraged to meet with your faculty and adviser, make use of all appropriate support services, and ask for help when you need it. Learning how to set goals, manage your time, study effectively, and use resources are skills that will serve you all through college, in graduate or professional school, in your career, and in your personal life.
