Ohio University is taking part in the national You Are Welcome Here campaign and is inviting students, faculty and staff to submit short videos related to the campaign.
We would like to spread the word across the globe that our campus is a warm, welcoming place for all students to pursue their academic dreams.
If you are interested in contributing to this project, please submit a short video of you or your group giving a welcoming message. Feel free to use your cellphone or other simple device to record the videos as we want this to be as easy as possible.
You can say, "You are welcome here" as one option. However, we understand that the phrase ‘you are welcome here’ may not directly translate into some native languages. That said, we encourage you (or your group) in your native language to explain why OHIO, and the Athens community, is a warm and welcoming place.
However, if you do use a language other than English, we ask that you please provide an English translation. Please include this translation in your video, and we can edit later.
Please submit your videos by Friday, April 21, 2017 through the box widget below. By submitting through the box widget you are agreeing to the below license and release statement.
