- meet other incoming OSU students
- become more familiar with campus
- complete university business, such as getting your BuckID card and consulting with student Financial Aid

Orientation is mandatory, and students are expected- and family members are strongly encouraged- to participate I all orientation activities. All new freshmen and transfer students will be charged a $ 50 registration fee and it will be assessed on the first semester statement of account.
