Cherry Blossoms at Ohio University
Ohio University’s iconic cherry trees draw attention each year, as their blooms symbolize the arrival of spring in Athens. They were given as a gift in 1979 by Chubu University, located in Kasugai Japan, in honor of OHIO’s 175th anniversary. Celebrating the arrival of the blooms along the Hocking River each spring serves as a yearly reminder of the 50-year global partnership with Chubu University.
Thank you for a wonderful 2022 Cherry Blossom season. We hope you enjoyed this years' bloom and we encourage you to check out Archive Slideshows of past years' blooms.
