2016 Fall Welcoming Social for new science students

Annual Fall Welcoming Social

The College of Science Students Advisory Committee (COSSAC) invites all new science students to its annual Fall Welcoming Social on Tuesday, September 20 from 1 to 3 pm in front of Kidder Hall on the Valley Library Quad.

Science students will enjoy ice cream and sorbet floats at the College of Science Welcoming Social. This fun event will give you a chance to connect with faculty, advisors as well as current and new science students. You can also chat with representatives of student organizations to learn more about exciting academic and extra curricular avenues, and find out about academic resources that will help you adjust to a life of science at OSU and make the most of your time here.

COSSAC is comprised of representatives from all of the science student organizations, from mathematics, physics and chemistry to biohealth sciences, biochemistry & biophysics, microbiology and biology.

Many new students joined the Peer Mentoring Program, which is coordinated by science student organizations. The program pairs new students up with a mentor who is either a sophomore, junior or senior science major. Peer to peer mentoring helps new students connect with more experienced students to foster collaboration and support as they begin their academic career in science.

Peer to peer mentors not only pass along knowledge gained during their time at OSU, but also share lessons learned from past mistakes and provide guidance for future decisions. All of which is tremendously helpful in science.

Welcome to OSU and thanks for joining us for the science Fall Social!
