Campus Field Trips The Office of Precollege Programs annually hosts students, generally in grades 6-8, plus teachers and parents for a day on campus intended to encourage underrepresented and minority students to go to college. Groups generally spend between 2-4 hours at OSU: they tour campus with an undergraduate peer mentor, eat lunch in a dining hall, visit a cultural center or stop by an athletic facility, and have a customized presentation and/or hands-on activity presented by a faculty member, staff, or students meant to enhance school curriculum as well as expose students to potential majors or careers.
