F1RST2GO focuses on three pillars that contribute to a successful college experience for students.


Students are assigned a peer mentor who will share about their experience at OSU. Peer mentors have been successful academically and can share what resources they have used to achieve their success.


F1RST2GO students attend campus events and will join at least one campus organization to help them feel more at home on campus. 


F1rst2Go meets regularly to discuss and complete activities focused on students' financial, academic, social, and physical well-being.

Benefits for F1RST2GO students:
  • A Campus Life professional dedicated to your success and campus involvement.

  • Lessons and activities that support your well-being as a student on- and off-campus. 

  • Instant connections with fellow first-generation participants.

  • Peer mentorship and small group activities.

  • An exclusive welcome to campus and events during Cowboy Welcome.

  • An opportunity to participate in The First Showcase, a first-gen visibility project.
