A space for students to connect with trained peer consultants to explore options and plan next steps, because achieving your goals is easier and more efficient with our support!

The Studio is the place to:

  • Find out what we offer and decide whether it's a good fit for you
  • Explore resources for developing a valuable skill set
  • Develop your idea -or narrow down many ideas
  • Explore resources available to OSU students: prototyping, funding, intellectual property support, mentoring, coursework, and more!
  • Create accountability for yourself by meeting regularly with the same consultant

Appointments are necessary for online appointments –we'll meet with you via Zoom.

Our goal for each session is for you to leave feeling confident about your next steps.

We can't wait to talk with you!
