Moms Weekend has earned a reputation for being one of the most popular weekends of the year. All Bobcat moms are welcome to join us for a memorable time, starting on Friday, April 4.
"I'm excited for my mom to come because she has visited every year so far and she now has the chance to visit with me, and my younger brother. We usually walk around campus and shop around, but this year we are looking forward to partaking in a cornhole tournament that benefits a great cause," says Alexis Lurie, a junior specialized studies major.
Whether you are looking for a good laugh, a great workout, a new bracelet or an opportunity to give back to the community, we have it all. Ohio University will be hosting plenty of events on this action-packed weekend, ranging from comedy shows and movie screenings, to golf outings and fundraisers.
