Welcome to Student Affairs


Welcome Home!  On behalf of the staff in the Division of Student Affairs, we are excited to have you in the Bobcat family.  Let me be the first to offer you a few suggestions for your Ohio University experience:

Make the most of your time here.  Take full advantage of everything that Ohio University offers.  Get involved in campus activities, attend campus events and get to know your professors.  Do not get too comfortable and keep your mind open to new experiences. You will be better for it and your time here will be better because of it.

Everyone needs an advocate.  The staff in Student Affairs will be your advocate at Ohio University.  We will always support you but will challenge you when necessary.  Our goal is to help you navigate your path through college and help you get the most out of it.

Leave OHIO better than you found it.  Make a difference on campus and with the people you encounter.  Our legacy is the 209 years of Bobcats that have come through the College Gate.  What will your legacy be?  How will you leave OHIO better than you found it?

Please be sure get to know the Student Affairs staff.  We are here for you!
