Among the rolling hills of Southeast Ohio is Ohio University, an institution of education known for its beautiful brick streets and vibrant community. A place that provides students with learning and research opportunities in a variety of fields, both on campus and throughout the surrounding region.

It’s also known for being one of the most beautiful campuses in the country, ranking second in the nation on CollegeRank.net’s list of "The 50 Most Beautiful Campus Quads," and arguably fall may just be the most beautiful time of the year at OHIO.

Students, faculty, staff, and community members are constantly surrounded by the beauty of Ohio University, Athens, and Southeast Ohio, whether that’s walking around campus or partaking in research or recreation around the region.
