University to host guidance counselors, admissions professionals

Aug 14, 2008  

Ohio University has been selected to host the 2008 Central and Southeast Ohio Articulation for the Ohio Association for College Admission Counseling (OACAC). Between 300 and 400 high school guidance counselors and college admissions representatives from across the state are expected to attend the Sept.  10 event.

The workshop, which the university last hosted in 1999, is designed to facilitate communication among admissions and guidance professionals and give them an opportunity to learn about changes in financial aid, standardized testing and Ohio Board of Regents initiatives.

"It is a great opportunity to showcase Ohio University to individuals who may have not been to our campus previously but who serve high school students in the college search process," said Kevin Witham, senior associate director in Undergraduate Admissions and on-site co-chair for the event. "It's important to support the Appalachian region and state with outreach programs that contribute to education, community and economic development." 

Funding from the Ohio Board of Regents will provide registration fee-waivers for guidance counselors from southeast Ohio Appalachian counties to encourage attendance from previously underrepresented schools. Additional funding from the Regents will provide free bus transportation to Athens for central Ohio guidance counselors.

A critical component of Articulation is the Counselors' College Fair in the Convocation Center, where admissions representatives from private and public two- and four-year Ohio universities will be available to speak with the high school guidance counselors.

The program concludes with optional walking tours of the Athens campus led by current student tour guides.
