The Ohio State University at Lima


FYE - Success Series

What is the Success Series?

Successful first-year students at Ohio State are those who learn how to utilize resources, resolve problems, and prepare themselves to take full advantage of their time here on campus. The Success Series helps to promote this success by offering short courses and presentations on the common concerns and questions first-year students have during their transition to university life. Moreover, successful students realize that learning extends beyond the walls of the traditional classroom and includes experiences with the performing arts.

First year students are often requested to attend events as a requirement for their Survey classes. However, they are highly encouraged to continue attending Success Series sessions that interest them throughout the year.
