​Oiler Success Card Program

Whether you are participating in the Oiler Success Card program for one of your classes (like your first-year seminar) or doing it on your own, everything you need to know is here for earning your 5 card-punches, earning a chance for great prizes, and building your skills for success at Findlay. 

How do I get an Oiler Success Card?

Cards are being distributed in many of the First-Year Seminars during the first two weeks of classes. Cards will also be available in the Buford Center (1222 N. Cory Street), Academic Support Center (Old Main, ground floor), and the Oiler Success Center (122 Old Main, first floor) from August 18 through September 21, 2018. 

How do I get Oiler Success card punches?

From August 19 through October 26, collect 5 card-punches on your Oiler Success Card by attending events and completing activities offered by the Oiler Success Card sponsoring offices. All of the activities will help you to build the skills you need to make this year a success and take your first steps to reaching your goals at Findlay.

The five​ card-punches can be earned by completing programs and workshops from any of the following sponsor areas. You may earn up to three card punches for attending different activities from a single area. 

  • Academic Support Center
  • Academic Advising
  • Career Planning
  • Disability Services
  • Oiler Success Center/Starfish
  • Intercultural Student Services
  • Office of International Education

You must have your Oiler Success Card with you to receive a card punch for completing an activity. Always bring your Oiler Success Card!


Academic Advising

** You may earn only one card punch from the Academic Advising area.

To receive a card-punch for this area, schedule an appointment with your advisor to review your graduation requirements and bring a printed copy of your degree audit to the meeting.  After you review your degree audit, ask your advisor to sign and date it. Bring your Oiler Success Card and your signed Degree Audit to the Oiler Success Center in Old Main to get your card punch.    


If you are enrolled in a First Year Seminar for Animal Science majors ANSC 110 and are required to print a degree audit and develop a four-year class plan for your major and degree, you may bring your completed audit and course plan, signed by your Seminar Instructor, to receive your Success Card punch for academic advising.
