Encourage your student to branch out

During the early days of the semester, it's normal for some students to still not feel connected to campus. If your student is having trouble finding his or her niche, suggest some of the following ideas:









Student Wellness Center

If your student struggles or feels overwhelmed with the concerns of college life, encourage him or her to seek help through the Student Wellness Center (SWC), located in B130 RPAC (Recreation and Physical Activity Center).

Services offered through the SWC give personal attention to students and promote emotional, career, social, spiritual, physical, financial, intellectual, aesthetic and environmental wellness. All meetings with students are private and provided in a safe atmosphere for exploration and discovery.










Free sessions available from Counseling and Consultation Service

Counseling and Consultation Service (CCS) offers counseling and therapy to help students address personal, academic and career concerns. CCS services are free to all currently enrolled Ohio State students up to ten sessions per academic year. Enrolled students covered by Ohio State's Comprehensive Student Health Insurance may be eligible for additional services.

Both individual and group counseling are available. In counseling, students develop more personal awareness and skills needed to overcome problems and take advantage of the educational opportunities at the university.










TOPP payment reminder

Friday, September 16, is the second payment due date for students and families enrolled in the Tuition Option Payment Plan (TOPP).
