the Office of Student Enrichment
The Office of Student Enrichment, or OSE,is designed to help all Wabash Men learn and develop critical skills for success at Wabash College and beyond. We use OSE Advisors, peer mentors who have been trained by Dr. Koppelmann, to reach as many students as possible. The OSE Advisors have one role: Help Wabash Men do their very best.
OSE Advisors accomplish this through one-on-one mentoring. Each session is custom-crafted to the needs of the student at the time. OSE Advisors mentors on a wide range of topics, including:
- Building and using a detailed schedule;
- Effectively taking notes;
- Effectively studying for exams;
- Correctly using sources;
- Balancing course work with social functions;
- Developing long- and short-term goals;
- Adjusting to college life;
- Improving English writing and speaking;
- Adjusting to American culture;
- Strategically planning for life beyond Wabash College.
Regardless of your questions, year, time of semester, concerns, or worries, the OSE is here to help
If you cannot find a time on the schedule, email Dr. Koppelmann.
Meet Our OSE Advisors
Hello! I am Io Maeda from Osaka, Japan. I am double majoring in Music (violist, not violinist!) and English, and minoring in German. Spending time at Wabash College was hard for me as an international student because I came to the US during the pandemic. However, I have learned how to overcome the difficulties thanks to the generous support from Dr. Koppelmann since the first semester of my freshman year. I hope my experience will help to guide you through your college life.
I am a Psychology, Spanish double major from Indianapolis, Indiana. My interests are science, music, animals, movies/films, and hockey. I enjoy creating academic plans and talking about academics. My post-Wabash goal is to become a counselor or therapist in Latin America.
I am a Fiji who is a biology major on the pre-med track. I have a lot of experience with lab sciences as well as utilizing the few hours I have everyday to be the most productive I can be. I am especially good at studying for exams and using class material to create my own study guide.
