Keeping Bobcats Informed, May 3, 2023

Wednesday, May 03, 2023

Bobcat Parents and Families,

I would like to extend my heartfelt congratulations to our graduating Bobcats and their families! This is an extraordinary moment that marks a significant milestone in your student's journey, and as family members, your unwavering support and guidance have played a crucial role in their success. Your encouragement, love, and sacrifices have helped shape them into who they are today. 

I am immensely proud of their accomplishments and grateful for your continued support. Please join us in celebrating our students' successes either in person or virtually at commencement this weekend. You can even download your own proud parent sign to bring along with you. 

I am excited to join in the celebrations and safe travels to everyone who is heading to Athens this weekend!

Go Bobcats,

Kathy A Fahl, MSW
Dean of Students

Campus Recycling

As you move out, remember that you can donate all your unwanted things to programs that will benefit the OHIO and Athens communities. There are donation stations located around town where you can donate items such as carpets, small appliances, clothes, bedding, furniture, and food. You can also schedule items to be picked up.

AAPI Heritage Month

The AAPI student union was established in 2021 to round out opportunities for community members, faculty, and students to find communities where they feel seen and heard. As we enter into May, AAPI Heritage Month, it is a great opportunity to honor and celebrate the contributions of our Asian American and Pacific Islander community members.
