How to Connect With a Strategist

Strategists are still available to support in person and remotely. Drop-in support is available in our Waldo 125 office or via Live Chat on our website from 9-5 M-F. You can ask quick questions or have a longer conversation with a Strategist - it's up to you! To use Live Chat, just click the little leaf icon (at the bottom of the page) to start a conversation. When live chat opens, you'll see a welcome message with our current live chat coverage.

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

When you book a 20-minute consultation, strategists can recommend campus resources and help you identify some tools and strategies to use moving forward. Click the Book Now button below for current availability.

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.

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.

Ready to Connect?

It's important for us to find ways to keep in touch and check in, and we're eager to meet you where you're at, whether that's an in-person conversation, a live chat exchange, a telephone chat, or an email or text. We know that everyone is navigating a lot right now. We're here for you, and excited to work with you. Check out all the ways to connect with us and pick the option that suits you best.

COVID-19 Health & Safety Protocols

Your health and safety are very important to us. If you choose to connect with a Strategist in person, we take the following safety measures to make sure you have a successful visit to Waldo 125:

  • Masks are required in all Academic Success Center spaces
  • Hand sanitizer is available before you enter the space and at multiple workspaces in our center
  • All shared tables and tools are cleaned with sanitizing wipes after each Strategist consult

We also provide support through Live Chat and Zoom if you prefer not to meet in person. If you have questions about our practices, please email Anika Lautenbach, the Coordinator of the ASC Strategist Program:
