OHIO Discovery Day

Deciding where to attend college is a life-changing decision, and we are here to help! OHIO Discovery Day is an in-person visit program designed for prospective first-year students and their families. This event is the perfect opportunity for you and your family to learn what OHIO can do for you.

OHIO Discovery Day will begin with a welcome session where you'll learn all about OHIO and how you can become a Bobcat. After the welcome session, you'll meet with faculty and staff from your academic interest area. Then, throughout the afternoon, you'll have opportunities to learn about financial aid and scholarships, get help completing your application, engage with representatives from campus resources, view a residence hall, and explore our beautiful campus on a student-led tour. All visitors are required to follow OHIO's COVID-19 safety protocols, which include masks/face coverings and social distancing indoors. 

No matter where you are in your college decision process, OHIO Discovery Day is the perfect next step, so don't miss it!
