OPIE Workshop

OPIE Workshop

Workshop “Navigating the University Landscape: A Roadmap” was successfully held on Oct. 15 for undergraduate students at the advanced and pre-academic levels of OPIE. The goal of the workshop was to make students’ transition from OPIE to the major fields of study at Ohio University easier and more successful. At the workshop, the students were able to discuss the differences between the United States and their home countries’ education systems, think of strategies to adjust to new academic requirements, practice ‘reading’ individual DARS reports, and finally participate in the DARS group contest. On Oct. 22, the same students attended OPIE Academic Orientation held by Allen Student Advising Center where they received more information on specific Ohio University departmental degree requirements, prepared to meet academic advisers, learned about Ohio University’s Learning Communities, and got ready to register for academic classes.
