Living Well

As with any transitional time in our lives, college students must focus some energy on their health and well-being. 

It's important to know that homesickness is common and a natural reaction to moving away from home. Although Ohio State can seem like a large place, there's a lot you can do to make it feel like home and adjust to new schedules, friends and living environments, including these alternatives:

  • Check out Learning Communities (unique residential experiences for those with similar interests)
  • Get involved
  • Know how to approach a roommate conflict
  • Be safe
  • Use your residence hall staff
  • Keep informed about what you eat
  • Exercise regularly
