Keeping Bobcats Informed, Feb. 1, 2022

Bobcat Parents & Families

Starting this Friday, we are hosting the annual Sibs Weekend here on campus! The University will hold a variety of activities to offer students and their siblings the opportunity to spend time with each other and experience OHIO. Whether they plan to attend the numerous campus events happening throughout the weekend or make their own itinerary, Sibs Weekend is all about getting an inside look into the student’s life on campus: the city of Athens, the friends, the buildings, the food, and the whole experience.

I can't wait to see all of the new faces on campus this weekend!
