Commuter and Appalachian Network (CAN)

The Ohio University Commuter and Appalachian Network (CAN) is a group that celebrates and connects OHIO's commuter students and students from the Appalachian region to each other, opportunities for academic and professional success, community service engagement activities, and potential mentors among OHIO faculty, staff, and alumni. Situated in the Appalachian region itself, Ohio University attracts a wealth of Appalachian students. CAN aims to exemplify the assets of the region, its people, and their successes through research-based, student-tailored, and student-inspired programming.


All events are open to everyone and students can attend any event simply by registering for the events in advance. All event and registration information is often announced via email and on other social media platforms. To be added to the email list or for more information, students can email omsarcan@ohio.edu
