Experience OHIO for Yourself
Special Visit Programs
There are so many ways to get a sneak peek into the life at Ohio University! If you're a prospective first-year student, transfer student or high-achieving high school senior, there's a visit program for you. We also have the OHIO Overview program, which provides an opportunity for us to come to or near your hometown so you can learn all about how you can become a Bobcat.
Daily Campus Visits
OHIO offers in-person campus visits for freshman and transfer students. To keep you and our Bobcat community safe, registration is required, and all visitors must follow OHIO's COVID-19 safety protocols. If you're not able to visit in person, we are also offering many virtual visit opportunities.
Ohio University's tour guides are eager to share their experiences and love for the beautiful Athens Campus with prospective students. Tour guides are scholars, athletes and leaders who are passionate about OHIO. Visit campus to meet them and learn why!
Every campus visit includes a walking tour where you can hear from current student tour guides as they share key campus information and their personal perspectives on their Forever OHIO experience.
