Ohio University Undergraduate Admissions values the role that secondary-school counselors play in the college search and admission processes. Our goal is to be as helpful to you and your students as possible.
Heart of Ohio Tour (HOOT)
You are cordially invited to participate in the Heart of Ohio Counselor Tour.
