The Multi-Institutional Study of Leadership (MSL) is an international research study focused on understanding the influences of higher education in shaping socially responsible leadership capacity and other leadership related outcomes (e.g., efficacy, cognitive skills, and resiliency). The MSL is one of the largest studies of undergraduate college student leadership* to date. OSU is only one of 250 campuses world-wide who will participate in the upcoming 2015 study.

The goal of the MSL is to increase student participation.  Over 4000 undergraduate students have been invited to participate and are entered to win gift cards worth up to $500.

OSU wants to hear your story! Your participation in the MSL survey will directly shape how OSU helps all students find opportunities to do things that matter and positively transform our world.

Don’t miss your chance to shape leadership opportunities at OSU!  For more information about the MSL visit:

My Study Life

College can be overwhelming, to say the least.  Your schedule varies day to day, there’s tests scattered randomly around, it’s really easy to forget the little assignments mentioned in class, and sometimes it just gets to be too much trying to remember everything.  Even using a paper planner, sometimes it gets forgotten at home when something new is assigned in class.  If this sounds like what happens to you, check out My Study Life!

My Study Life can do many things for the average college student.

  • Manage Classes- your schedule, online!  With week and day rotation timetable support, this turns your academic years/terms into tasks
  • Track Tasks- homework, assignments, reminders, and revision.  Leave your paper planner at home, because with this app, you will never need it again
  • Store Exams- Accessible anywhere, exams will never sneak up on you again, giving you ample time to prepare and ace that exam
  • Get Notified- the mobile app of My Study Life gives you notifications of unfinished tasks, upcoming exams, and classes before they start.

My Study Life gives college students the opportunity to focus on what’s really important: learning.  Instead of using all of their time and energy worrying about what is coming next, My Study Life allows students to worry about the content of their classes and can help make the transition to college life easier and more successful.

Give My Study Life a try this term!

Scholarship Application Now Open for 2015-2016

Being a college student is expensive.  Students work hard, in and out of the classroom and there is an opportunity to be rewarded for all of that diligent labor!  The College of Forestry Scholarship Application for the 2015-2016 Academic Year is now open!

To be eligible to receive a scholarship award ALL students must:

  • Maintain full-time enrollment (at least 12 credits) during Fall, Winter, and Spring terms.
  • The College of Forestry must be on record as your primary college (for students who have double majors).
  • Make reasonable and continued progress toward your College of Forestry degree program while receiving a scholarship.
  • If dual enrolled in the Degree Partnership Program, at least 6 of the minimum 12 required per term credits must be at OSU.  You also must provide the CoF proof of your community college registration.
  • Maintain high academic standards (generally considered to be at least a 3.0 OSU Accumulative GPA for continuing students; minimum GPA expectations are similar for first-year students and transfer students).

Through the generosity of our donors, the College awarded over $500,000 in undergraduate scholarships for the 2014-15 academic year with individual awards ranging from $1,000 – $9,000. The average cumulative GPA of those students awarded was 3.53. While scholarships are generally based on academic performance, some are specific to need, degree program, or other criteria set by our donors, so don’t hesitate to apply.

The scholarship deadline is March 15, 2015!
