Welcome events give accepted students preview of life at CPH, Ohio State, and Columbus

The College of Public Health will host a welcome event this weekend for students admitted to its graduate programs for Fall 2013.

Saturday, March 2 marks the second welcome event held at the college for admitted graduate students.

 “The Admitted Student Visit day gives students the opportunity to learn more about the college, the university, and the city of Columbus,” said Kynthia Droesch, director of the college’s Office of Academic Programs and Student Services (OAPSS). “Students also have the opportunity to meet with current faculty and students to ask any remaining questions they have.”

During the visit organized by OAPSS, Michael Bisesi, senior associate dean of academic affairs, welcomes students and provides them with information about the academic programs and services offered at the College of Public Health.

Lois Hall, executive director of the Ohio Public Health Association and an alumna of the college’s Master of Science program, will speak to the students about her public health journey, the great contributions of public health to society, and what they have to look forward to after they finish their graduate school experience.

At the end of the program, a panel of current students discuss their experiences in the College of Public Health and offer advice to admitted students regarding funding their education. Students learn about the career opportunities available to them during graduate school and post-graduation.

“It is always an exciting time for admitted students to get to know more about their program, and we are also excited as we get to put a faces with names,” Droesch said. “We feel confident that after their visit here students will become part of our Buckeye family.”
