1804 Scholars

As an 1804 Scholar, you won’t miss anything our vibrant university community has to offer. In addition to the program perks, your close-knit cohort of scholars will have dedicated program coordinators to curate access to the events and resources that make the Ohio University experience unique and unforgettable. With a focus on well-being as well as academic enrichment, this is a scholars program that will offer a rich blend of peer, faculty, and campus engagement.

Program Features

  • Residential

    Between a quiet study environment and an emphasis on academic achievement and personal well-being, you’ll find true community in the residence hall you share with your fellow Scholars, where you'll build connections that foster physical, mental, and emotional health. 

  • Multi-Year Program

    Make the most of your time living on campus. Spend your first year immersed in curated University experiences, and launch into an early leadership role as a peer mentor or wellness coach during your second year. You'll have access to OHIO Honors Program classes where space is available, and program benefits and engagement opportunities continue throughout your undergraduate experience.

  • Extracurricular

    Coordinated 1804 programming allows you to enjoy speakers, performances, exhibits, and skill-building workshops. At each event, engage in unique roundtable discussions with your Scholars community and faculty. You'll also have the opportunity to participate in honors and scholars social events like game nights and movie screenings.
