Cowboy Connections is a great way for freshmen to have a home-base during their freshman
year. The Campus Connection Coaches (CCC) from First Year Success can assist you
with getting familiar with campus and knowing the resources available to you.

Campus Talks Video Series
Each week we’ll upload relatable videos that talk about student experiences as well
as the college experience of OSU professionals and their first year. We will talk
about things like how to practice self-care and mental health with the covid19 pandemic,
how to pay for college, how to get around campus, how to talk to your roommate, how
to live on your own for the first time, how to live on a college budget, how to find
your squad, how to find a mentor, how to get familiar with your professors, how to
keep your academics on track, how to balance school and social life, how to stay healthy,
and how to find your passion. These videos are a combination of current OSU students
and Alumni as well as current OSU personnel. You will learn about many resources on
campus and where to go if you need help.
