• Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Take Advantage of Summer START:


    You can earn 2 course credits toward graduation for taking ODU 110!


    Free books! Not only is Summer START free for you, but the University pays for your textbooks your first Fall semester if you successfully complete the summer portion of the program. In additon, if you successfully complete the START follow-up activities and expectations over the course of your first academic year, the University will also pay for your textbooks for your first Spring semester.


    Make new friends!


    If small class sizes and student-teacher ratio is one reason you chose ODU, then you’ll love Summer START! You will be a big part of a small, supportive learning environment with easy access to professors, advisors, and other ODU staff.


    You get a head start on learning your way around campus. Find your favorite spots to study, eat, and just hang out on campus before everybody returns.


    You’ll learn useful tips that can help you succeed in the classroom. You’ll learn study skills strategies, tips for note-taking in college, test-taking strategies, how to use a college syllabus, how to effectively use the library, and much more!


    You’ll learn all about what ODU has to offer outside the classroom including incredible study abroad opportunities, helpful career development resources, important academic resources, caring Campus Ministry support, exciting social events, and much more.


    You’ll get to know Columbus! Whether you’re new to the area or have lived here your whole life, Columbus has so many fun things to do – especially in the summer. In Summer START, you’ll be able to participate in several exciting and unique Columbus adventures.


    Do you like helping others? If you do, after Summer START you’ll have so much knowledge about campus that you’ll be able to tell new students where the Academic Resource Center is located, where to go for help with financial aid, who to talk to if you want to join a student organization, and much more.


    This is probably the only time you’ll ever be able to do something like this – so take advantage of it!
