The OHIO experience has shaped current students and alumni forever.

“To me, “Forever OHIO” means having a community of support that I can lean on even long after I graduate. It means having an unspoken bond with strangers in Bobcat gear that I pass in airports or on the street. It means having a place to call home, no matter how frequently I may move from city to city. To me, “Forever OHIO” means being more than just a student — it’s being a Bobcat, through and through."


“I didn't know OHIO was my forever home until sophomore year! I transferred last minute and fell in love once classes started.”
