|Arts And Sciences Program Highlight
Study the world, see the world! International Studies offers 11 majors, 10 minors and 5 certificates. Two majors that have been drawing particular interest since 9/11 are International Relations and Diplomacy and Security and Intelligence. International Studies runs an extensive internship program and along with the Office of International Affairs promotes study abroad. Read more in the Small World Magazine.
|Student Organization Highlight|
The Arts and Sciences Student Council is open to all undergraduate students. Student Council plans college events such as "Meet the Prof" dinners, an OSU Professional School Fair, the Outstanding Teaching Awards, as well as social and service opportunities. Open meetings are held every other Monday. Meeting dates.
|"Meet The Prof" - Dinner And Conversation|
Free informal dinner and conversation with Dr. Brenda Brueggemann, professor in the Department of English and recipient of the College of Arts and Sciences 2010 Outstanding Teaching Award. Monday, October 10 from 5:30 - 7:30 PM in Room 311 Denney Hall. Additional Information.
Many students realize that the opportunity exists to meet and network with employers on campus, but few understand that recruiters use timelines that differ from graduation timelines. The majority of those recruiting for corporate jobs and internships will be here this quarter; therefore, those with winter or spring graduation plans are encouraged to review the listings of fall recruitment events posted at: Career Services Events. Update your calendars now to make sure you don't miss the events that relate to your career goals! Not familiar with how to promote yourself at such events? The Promote Yourself tip sheet is a good starting point.

OSU offers more than 100 different study abroad programs in over 40 different countries. The Office of International Affairs will host a Study Abroad Expo
on October 6. For help selecting a program and finding resources to finance a program attend a Getting Started
