First Year Connections Team

The First Year Connections team makes meaningful connections between current second-year Ohio State students and incoming first-year students to help them successfully transition through their first year at Ohio State. The First Year Connections Team accomplishes this through establishing mentoring relationships and programs designed to connect students to resources, traditions and opportunities. Programs run by the First Year Connections Team include the Scarlet Scramble, a peer mentoring program and participation in other university events for first-year students.
