Students celebrate grand opening of new residence halls (VIDEO)


A full day’s worth of festivities celebrating the opening of four new residence halls on Ohio University’s Athens Campus was capped off with an event to welcome Bobcats to this new site designed for both living and learning.

Hosted by OHIO’s Department of Housing and Residence Life, the Aug. 29 event was open to all Ohio University students and featured everything from a mobile zip line and a Skyfall stunt jump to giant board games, a fire show and wagon rides. It was held in and around the new housing complex that also includes the campus’ first-of-its-kind Living Learning Center.
