How to Connect With a Strategist

Strategists are available to connect via Live Chat from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Just click the little leaf icon (at the bottom of the page) to start a conversation. You can use this feature for quick questions, or as way to start a longer conversation via Zoom.

If you have an urgent need or concern outside of regular business hours, please call the OSU Public Safety Dispatch @ 541-737-3010.

While you can drop-in and chat with a Strategist anytime M-F from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., we know that booking a specific time to talk with someone can be helpful. You can now schedule a 20-minute Zoom consultation between 1:00 and 4:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Strategists can recommend campus resources and help you identify some tools and strategies to use moving forward.

Each of these options works well for quick questions too. If you’d like to provide some more context to help us understand your experience, then we recommend emailing or calling as opposed to texting. Just like with live chat, we will respond to these inquires between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

If you have an urgent need or concern outside of regular business hours, please call the OSU Public Safety Dispatch @ 541-737-3010.

During fall term 2020, while we won't be meeting with people in our office, there may be some other opportunities to connect with us on campus. Check the events calendar and follow us on Instagram to stay up to date!

What Strategists Do

Our ASC Strategists are here to support you on your path to academic success. We know that adapting to blended learning is a process, and that this is a new challenge for many of us.

OSU still has SO MANY RESOURCES to support you, but sometimes it can be hard to know what you're looking for, and/or where to find it – especially now. Our ASC Strategists have worked to get to know the resources on campus, have compiled information on them, and are ready to answer your questions and help you find exactly what you’re looking for.

In addition to helping students locate resources, our Strategists can assist you to find study and learning tools and information on our Learning Corner, identify strategies for learning course content and prepping for exams, and can help you communicate with faculty and fellow students. We can also help you to schedule an academic coaching appointment.
