As we approach mid- quarter, students should be getting quite busy studying for mid-terms and completing term papers. It can sometimes be difficult for students (or any of us, for that matter) to stay enthusiastic as winter wears on... it's cold, it's wet, and it's dark and gray outside.  So it's important that we stay positive for students and encourage them to get out and do something new:

  • Has your student attended one of the Baron's Basketball games? What a great team! And they keep the games exciting, often winning at the last second.

  • Intramural volleyball and basketball are great ways to get a little exercise.

  • First Year Experience is going Ice Skating, February 19. Sign up with Gail Nelson.

  • And of course, What's On Wednesdays and the Performing Arts and Lecture Series has been hosting some terrific comedians, musicians and performances to break up the long winter days.


    Other topics:

  • Your student's 1098 form is now available on their Student Center Page. Be sure to print that out as your prepare to file taxes!

  • The Lima Counseling and Consultation Offices are in the process of moving offices. Now located on the first floor of Galvin Hall, help has never been easier to find!

  • The Financial Aid Office is offering a Financial Aid workshop February 3, from 5:30-7pm. If you need help filing your FAFSA or just have some questions about next year's finances, please attend. http://lima.osu.edu/calendar/detail.php?id=349&d=main

  • And, with a winter storm in the forecast, don't forget that students can now register at BuckeyeAlert.osu.edu for weather delays and/or cancellations.


    Hope you are doing well!
