What Employees Say

campus beauty "The Athens area is beautiful with rolling hills and the university grounds are absolutely gorgeous!  The town and university blend together well, creating a small-town feeling with an abundance of knowledge and culture that are mostly found in larger cities. It’s a great place to raise a family and work.  People are friendly, the local schools are exceptional, and once you have stepped into this hidden paradise in southeast Ohio, you will never want to leave!" - Ann, Campus Involvement Center
"I have lived and worked in Athens for the past 14 years and have really enjoyed it.  I consider myself lucky to have the opportunity to work with so many great people, within my department and across campus." - Amy, Athletics  view
architecture “Having grown up in a metropolitan area, I was pretty sure Athens wasn’t going to be a fit when we moved here nearly a decade ago. But the rolling hills and vibrant, close-knit community eventually won me over. While I love the small-town charm of Athens, living in close proximity to the University also affords many urban perks – including cultural events, Broadway shows, sports, concerts and educational opportunities – all within walking distance of my home! There’s never a dull moment and so many ways to engage. I feel very fortunate to be raising my children in such a safe, supportive and forward-thinking environment.” - Monica, Student Affairs
"I came to Ohio University as a capable professional and have been given multiple opportunities to grow as a leader. The challenge, trust, and support I have received have allowed be to create new approaches to my work and new initiatives for students. I have been fortunate to work with a range of campus partners and each interaction has focused on the best was to assist our students. Ohio University is truly the student-centered space that it has aspired to be as well as being a great place to work. This is a university that focuses on people first." - Joy, University College building


photo2 "As an undergraduate student at OHIO, my career interests were shaped by the faculty and staff who exemplified passion for their work. Now, as an employee, I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to do the same. In the short time I’ve been here, I’ve been able to apply my passion for both human resources and inclusion work through various committees and campus initiatives with full support from campus leadership. I’ve also been granted the opportunity to develop my skills by participating in Women Leading OHIO (a leadership program for women early in their careers at OHIO), learning from formal mentorship, and forming a myriad of informal mentorship connections. This university is home to many amazing people who strive for excellence and continuous improvement in their research and their work – I can’t imagine being anywhere else!" - Cat, Human Resources
“My experience at OHIO has been quite satisfying. As a liberal arts university, I am inspired to engage with the students, faculty, and the community in a variety of creative and scholarly ways through my teaching, research, and service. What makes OHIO great is its focus on transformative learning, which challenges us to strive for excellence as educators, and nurtures our students to be well rounded and productive citizens of the future.” - Travis, College of Fine Arts building
