Visiting OHIO

Experience OHIO for Yourself

It's easy to see the beauty of our campus in photos across our website, but nothing compares to how it feels to breathe in the fresh air of fall and see the colorful leaves tumble across the bricks while crossing College Green, or taking in a spring sunset while enjoying the magic of the Cherry Blossom trees along the Hocking River. What are you waiting for? There are so many experiences waiting for you in Athens — register for the campus visit that works best for you to get started!
