Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

Time: Wednesday, August 15, 2018 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Location: Columbus Campus

The Ohio State Welcome Leader (OWL) Program will begin on Wednesday, 8/15. Times and locations regarding details will be provided later this summer once OWL applications have been reviewed.

Are you interested in being part of the excitement of Move In Day 2018?  If so, you may want to consider becoming an OWL! Every year we recruit over a thousand of OWLs to move-in early and prepare their residence halls and build community.  We encourage you to submit an application if you do not already have plans to return to campus for another early arrival program.  The OWL program is a great way for students to become part of the OSU Family and get a jump start into Autumn Semester!

This year we're taking a day trip on Thursday 8/16 to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium and Zoombezi Bay. Transportation, Admission to both parks, and a $10 meal voucher will be covered by the OWL Program.

If you're planning on attending the Beyonce and Jay Z concert, we will be back well before the concert and the program has no evening activities due to this event. 

Applications are due Saturday, June 30th
