Global Education Updates

The Office of International Affairs has created several ways to stay globally engaged while travel is restricted.  

Buckeye Bridge Series

Buckeye Bridge is a virtual series that brings the world right to you. On CarmenZoom, students can explore international cultures from their own homes. Sessions include applying for a passport, how studying abroad positively impacts careers, international cuisine, sports and much more. Check the calendar for more information coming soon. 

Buckeyes Abroadcasts

Buckeyes Abroadcasts is a podcast hosted by Global Education Specialists that discuss programs, resident directors, ways to stay globally engaged while remaining in the U.S. and the basics of education abroad including program type, how to apply for a program, grants and scholarships and more. Listen on Soundcloud and iTunes.

Global Education Expo Week

As an alternative to an in-person Global Education Expo, the Office of International Affairs is hosting a virtual Global Education Expo Week. During September 8-10, students can attend the launch of the Buckeye Bridge virtual series, catch a Getting Started Session and engage with past study abroad participants. More details will be available on the calendar soon.  

Global Education Getting Started Sessions

At a Getting Started Session, students will explore the basics of education abroad, learn about how to select the program that’s right for them, how to finance their program and navigate the application process. Getting Started Sessions will be held on CarmenZoom every Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. and every Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. View the calendar to register for a session that fits your schedule.

Global Education Virtual Appointments

The offices in Enarson Classroom Building are currently closed, but Global Education Specialists are available for virtual appointments during autumn semester. Phone or CarmenZoom appointments can be reserved at go.osu.edu/edabroadstaff.

Program Updates

As Ohio State continues to monitor the global outbreak of COVID-19 and take appropriate steps to ensure the health and well-being of the campus community, the Office of International Affairs will provide regular updates and guidance for students, scholars, faculty and staff relating to international travel at go.osu.edu/BvZE.
