Walk-In Advising Hours

Did you know that the CBC Advisors designate times each weekday for walk-in appointments? Walk-in appointments allow you to get quick questions answered. Regularly checking in with an advisor helps ensure you are on the right track to achieve your academic and personal goals and are getting the most out of your CBC degree.  Check in at the front desk of 110 Celeste Lab to see an advisor during the following times during the 2018-2019 Academic Year:

  • Mondays 9:00 – 11:00 AM
  • Tuesdays 2:00 – 4:00 PM
  • Wednesdays 9:00 – 11:00 AM
  • Thursdays 2:00 – 4:00 PM

*The walk-in hours schedule is subject to change, and additional walk-in hours may be added to accommodate Friday deadlines.  The Undergraduate Studies Office may be closed on national holidays, so walk-ins would be cancelled and no advising appointments would be available. 

If the hours above are not convenient for your quick questions, you are welcome to schedule an appointment. Note: Walk-in hours are not appropriate for complex questions, graduate applications, etc. To make an appointment or inquire about the walk-in hours of a specific advisor, call us at (614) 292-6009.

Course Spotlight: Biochem 5613

*New* Biochem 5613 will be offered in Autumn 2018!

What: Biochemistry & Molecular Biology I

Description: An introductory course in biochemistry and molecular biology developing in three semesters the molecular basis of structure and function of living cells.

Pre-req or concur: Chem 2520 (253), 2620, or 2920H, and one semester in Biological Sciences. Not open to students with credit for 613 or 4511 (511).

When: Tu Th 12:45-2:05 PM
Where: Pomerene Hall 150
Who: Dr. Kotaro Nakanishi 

Biochem 5613 has been previously only offered in the spring, but Biochemistry is a growing major and new requirement for many pre-health professions. Many professional schools including medical school require a Biochemistry course. Students may take Biochem 4511, Introduction to Biological Chemistry, or they can take Biochem 5613 and Biochem 5614 to get the content of Biochem 4511 in a more in-depth format.

Biochem 5614 is currently only offered in the autumn semester. However, depending on the enrollment in this new offering of Biochem 5613 in Autumn 2018 and student interest in pursuing a two-semester sequence, the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry will consider an additional offering of Biochem 5614 in Spring ’19.

If you are interested in declaring Biochemistry as a major or a minor or have any questions, please call the undergraduate advising office in Celeste 110 to schedule an appointment at (614) 292-1204.

Med School Q and A Sessions

Every semester the OSU College of Medicine offers Q and A sessions to address questions and concerns held by current pre-med students here at OSU. Each session is held as an informal discussion, where students can come and ask any questions they have, about any step in the daunting Medical School process! In previous sessions they have discussed a wide array of topics, such as gap years, personal statements, the MCAT, the application process, the review of applicants, and any other questions you can imagine.

This semester, starting in September, the Q and A sessions will be held the 2nd Wednesday of the month from 8:00am to 9:00am, and the 4th Wednesday of the month from 6:00pm to 7:00pm.  Meetings will always be held in Meiling Hall Room 233.

Questions? Refer to this flyer for general information, and email medicine@osu.edu with further questions. Register here to claim a spot at one of these info sessions!
