Focusing on the First Year Conference
Focusing on the First Year Conference brings together faculty and staff from across the Columbus and regional campuses to focus on the university's efforts to support the success of first-year students. The most important foundations for college success, and ultimately graduation, are built during the first year. Hosted by First Year Experience each spring semester, the conference is designed to encourage faculty and staff to share ideas about helping first-year students transition successfully to college life at Ohio State.

Presentations from Focusing on the First Year, January 27, 2015
First Year Experience would like to thank all of the presenters and panelists who participated in this year’s conference. Without their hard work and dedication to supporting first-year students and their willingness to share what they have learned, this conference would not be such a great success. A special thank you is extended to Dr. Vincent Tinto, the 2015 Keynote Speaker.
