Are you admitted as a first-year student for Fall 2015? Are you still deciding where you want to go to college? Do you want to get a closer look at Ohio University? Come see OHIO Up Close!

OHIO Up Close is an on-campus open house designed with separate tracks for both admitted first-year students and prospective transfer students. This one-day event is the perfect opportunity for you and your family to get the essentials about student life on the Athens campus, including academics, residence life, campus organizations, and more. It's everything you need to know before making your final college decision!

We hope you and your family will join us for OHIO Up Close. Limited space is available and reservations are provided on a first-come, first-served basis.

Note: If anyone in your party needs disability accommodations during your visit, please contact Undergraduate Admissions at 740.593.4100.

What's Next?
Attendance at OHIO Up Close is not required and does not replace the Bobcat Student Orientation program that will occur this summer. You should receive Your Path to OHIO, a guide that includes detailed information about the housing contract process and other admitted-student essentials via the postal mail. After the Residential Housing office receives your housing contract and deposit, you will receive your invitation to Bobcat Student Orientation in mid-May.
