A letter from our Assistant Dean of Students:

It is with great pleasure for me to personally join the many others in our community that will welcome you and your student to the Bobcat family!

Life is full of transitions and you have guided your student through many of the important ones: walking, losing the first front tooth, going to kindergarten, becoming a teenager, getting a driver’s license, graduating from high school, and now college, which may be the most challenging of all.  We believe that student success is enhanced when parents and family members engage in an effective working partnership with our institution.

In collaboration with university departments and offices, we seek to partner with you to provide timely, helpful information to aid in the academic, social and holistic success of Ohio University students. Ultimately, we want your student to be safe, enjoy their college experience, graduate, and to become productive citizens.

To accomplish this mission we seek to:

  • Effectively communicate with parents and families
  • Help parents and families understand and navigate the Ohio University landscape
  • Provide advocacy for parents and families
  • Provide programs that support the engagement of parents in the Ohio University experience

After orientation, should you have additional questions, we encourage you to visit the Parents/Family website at ohio.edu/parents, call our office at 740-593-1800 or via email at parents@ohio.edu.

Again, welcome to the Bobcat family. We look forward to partnering with you!

Sincerely,

Jamie S. Patton, Ed.D.
