Be Informed Bobcats
The college experience can be overwhelming. There are a lot of choices to make, from residence hall selection, dining choices, class selection, to social and community interactions. That’s why we want to help make sure all Bobcats have the resources they need to be informed as they embark upon their college experience.
Ohio University community members take great pride in our institution. We are proud of our distinguished history and heritage, our beautiful campus, the renowned reputation of our faculty, our active and committed student body and of our partnerships with the southeast region of our state.
Together with our five core values of character, community, citizenship, civility and commitment, this sense of pride defines who we are and helps to clarify the promise of what it means to be a member of the OHIO community.
Welcoming and connecting with new students starts at Bobcat Student Orientation where we introduce incoming students to the individuals and resources they will need to ensure they are comfortable in their transitions, connected to campus resources, and confident in their academic schedules before beginning their first semester at Ohio University.
These resources have been identified as critical tips, guidelines, and resources to help our Bobcats be better bystanders. Your well-being is important to us, and we can all be better bystanders when we are informed about University policies, tips, guidelines, and tools that can help us stay on track with a healthy, happy pathway to graduation day.
Sexual Assault Prevention & EducationWe start conversations about sexual assault prevention and education as early as Bobcat Student Orientation, encouraging that conversation to continue throughout each Bobcat's whole life.
Hazing Prevention ActivitiesMultiple university task forces focus on maintaining programs and policies related to hazing prevention.
Bias, Discrimination & HarassmentAll Bobcats have a responsibility to make sure our community is free of discrimination and harassment. We've gathered resources and action items related to bias, discrimination and harassment at the university.
SafetyFrom the OHIO Police Department to classes to shuttles, we do all that we can to keep our Bobcats safe.
