Ohio University celebrates First-Gen Friday on the first Friday of the month. On First-Gen Friday, the OHIO First Scholars program invites students, faculty, and staff to wear their “First-Gen? Me Too!” shirts and join us to celebrate and show pride in being the first! Each First-Gen Friday, OHIO First Scholars hosts an event and invites the first-gen community to attend. Attending these events is a great way to get connected to other First-Gen Bobcats.

Welcome to the Allen Student Advising Center
When you were admitted to Ohio University it was because we believe you can be successful here. We help students find the best path for themselves and make strategic decisions that guide them to graduation. If you would like to talk with an advisor about your academic options at Ohio University, please contact us! We provide guidance for students exploring academic options or seeking to improve academic outcomes.
