Currently declared, but thinking about a change in direction?

It is a very common experience for students to realize that their initial major choice is not the right fit.  If that is your experience, don't panic!  UESP is here to help you figure out which major direction at OSU is right for you.  You're welcome to switch to UESP or even just consult with one of our advisors.  Either way just requires that you make an appointment as we want to make sure we have enough time to have a good conversation with you.  Call our office at 541-737-8144 or Book Online Here.

Considering coming to OSU?
