Family Weekends at OHIO

Sibs Weekend

February 5—February 7, 2016

One of the first and best family weekends.  Big and little sibs are invited to have a taste of college life and to bond with their brother or sister.  Cousins and other family members are welcome, too!

Ohio University Alumni Chapters will be offering round-trip bus transportation from Akron and Cleveland to Athens for Sibs Weekend! Proceeds from the sale of bus tickets will benefit the chapter's scholarship to send a local area student to OHIO. For information on purchasing tickets visit the Ohio University Alumni Association's website HERE.

** The schedule of events for Sibs Weekend will continue to be updated as additional information from student organizations and University departments is provided.

Historically, one of the most popular weekends of the year is Moms Weekend. All Ohio University moms are invited to join us in Athens for a very special time.

The Athens County Convention and Visitors Bureau maintains a list of local availabilities through their "Where To Stay" website located here.  The Hocking Hills also offers a lodging directory, too.  Their "Where To Stay" website is located here.

Ohio University is committed to ensuring its programs, services, and activities are accessible to students, faculty, staff and the general public with disabilities, who visit or attend a campus-sponsored event.
