Ready to begin your adventure?
Going to college is a big transition and OSU’s START orientation program is where it all begins. You’ll discover new opportunities, engage with other students and mentors, make friendships that may last a lifetime and belong to a place we think it pretty special.
It all begins with START, OSU’s two-day orientation program that is designed to make your transition as smooth as possible. All students must register for START, which is hosted by the Office of New Student Programs and campus partners to introduce incoming students to each other and to our campus and academic communities.
OSU’s campus is home to an exhilarating culture, longstanding traditions and an energy and vibe that can only exist in our unique corner of the Pacific Northwest. The College of Science is committed to student learning and developing a strong scientific community committed to excellence, diversity, inclusion and that is above all, welcoming.
We are thrilled to welcome you to the next class of scientists. There’s so much to do, discover, learn and experience.
