Student Academic Mentor Program

Student Academic Mentors (SAMs) are a select group of OSU students who work with new freshmen to help them adjust socially and academically at OSU. SAMs serve as mentors for new freshmen advised through University College Advising. SAMs commit one to two hours each week to a First-Year Seminar course throughout the fall semester.

SAMs connect new students to OSU and ease their transition to college life by providing personal support, introducing available resources and fostering relationships to promote extra-curricular involvement and academic excellence.

Most importantly, SAMs help new freshmen feel welcome and get excited about OSU!
