Bobcat Student Orientation

Bobcat Student Orientation connects you with the people and resources you'll need to transition to OHIO with confidence. Learn about the curriculum, register for classes, meet fellow students in your college, and get in touch with your inner Bobcat. Our goal is for every student to leave Orientation with a complete and appropriate schedule (and some new friends).
