Keeping Bobcats Informed, Aug. 3, 2022

Published: August 3, 2022 Author: Staff reports

Bobcat Parents & Families, 

As opening week approaches, we're in the thick of logistics here on campus as we gear up for OHIO's largest class of incoming students, as well as our many returning Bobcats.

For all students who are commuting to campus or are worried about parking during a busy semester, I want to remind you of the various campus and public transportation options in Athens. We are working hard to reallocate space for student vehicles wherever possible. As the anticipation for fall builds, so does the workload. We're grateful to you for bearing with us!

Be well,

Kathy A Fahl, MSW

Dean of Students

Every voice counts. Make Respect Visible

We strive to celebrate each person who makes up our community. Respectful communication across differences is possible, and here at OHIO, it's an expectation.
