Commencement 2011

Dear Graduating Bobcat, Kent Smith


"You may move your tassels to the left!" There will only be a few times in your life when such a simple action will have such great significance. On behalf of the Division of Student Affairs, I am thrilled to offer you congratulations on your upcoming graduation  from Ohio University. This is a major accomplishment, and marks an important milestone in your life. You will soon join the almost 200,000 living alumni who have fulfilled the promise of Ohio University. As you move forward in your life's journey, I hope you will always be a proud OHIO Bobcat!


Many people have supported you in this journey, and I offer congratulations to them as well. I am sure your parents, family members, friends, faculty members, mentors, and others look forward to helping you to celebrate your graduation. I, too, look forward to seeing you at Commencement in June.




Kent J. Smith, Jr., Ph.D.


Vice President for Student Affairs
