Involvement in clubs and organizations on campus provides experiences that compliment and enhance college life. It is one of the more important aspects of a college education because it enables a student to mature personally, socially, intellectually, and spiritually. There are many benefits to joining a student organization including making new friends, developing leadership skills and abilities, working as part of a team, learning to set and achieve goals, sharing your time and talents, as well as having fun. It is a common misconception that college is just for studying, and there is not time to get involved. The main agenda in college is definitely to go to class, study, and graduate, but there is PLENTY of time to get involved!
At the beginning of each quarter, students are encouraged to take a few minutes and plan out time commitments. Students will usually find at least 10 hours of free time per week. Students may attend the Involvement and Community Fair held during Welcome Week to learn about opportunities for involvement on campus and to meet other students with their same interests on campus. Taking advantage of the involvement opportunities available at Ohio State Mansfield allows a student to discover that the more involved a student is in the college community, the more that student will benefit from the college experience.

Seminars are conducted by campus experts, community leaders, and well-known personalities to help students transition smoothly to college life and make the most of their time at Ohio State.
Prior to beginning the first year at Ohio State Mansfield, students participate in an introduction to the university. Students mix and mingle; create their academic schedules; meet with advising staff, orientation leaders, and other staff. They learn what to expect both in and out of the classroom.
The primary goal of this course is to help each student become an independent, fully functioning, competitive, sensitive, and contributing member of the university community of students, staff, and faculty at The Ohio State University at Mansfield. USAS 100 utilizes a combination of completing activities on the web and personally attending approved events, programs and seminars. Students are required to complete a variety of assignments found on the course web site. The grade for this course is based on the quality and level of completion of the requirements. To complete this web-enhanced course, students will use the USAS 100 Carmen course web site along with other web resources in lieu of a textbook.
The mission of Welcome Week is to provide programming and information that will assist students as they make The Ohio State University and the Mansfield campus their home and to foster a sense of connection throughout the entire University Community by taking part in a unified effort to welcome new and returning students.
