Bobcat Student Orientation

Mission

As a unit of the Office of First-Year & Student Transitions, Bobcat Student Orientation (BSO) is responsible for the successful orientation of all new undergraduate students at Ohio University, Athens campus.  The primary focus of our programs is to make certain all students and their families/guests feel welcome, comfortable in their transitions, connected to campus resources, and confident in their academic schedules before beginning their first semester on the Athens campus of Ohio University. BSO coordinates orientation programs for first-year and transfer students, as well as Relocate Day for students relocating to the Athens campus from a regional campus.
