  • A Message from Dr. Nellis

    The first full day at a university is always a challenge: You have to memorize new names and faces of professors and students, learn where all the important buildings are, and develop the skill of discreetly peeking at your campus map occasionally when you suddenly find you’re in a place that doesn’t look at all familiar. I think I will have a great deal of empathy for Ohio University’s incoming freshmen this fall because of these renewed type of experiences.

    While sometimes nerve-racking, there’s also something wonderful about the first day of a new experience, isn’t there? Aside from having a new beginning full of potential, you have the opportunity to take stock of not just what you want to be, but the great opportunities you have to advance the institution you now call home. Figuring out what Ohio University can be starts with knowing what it is, and my first official day has given me some powerful insight into the hidden gems that exist all over our campus.
