Ohio University


OHIO News serves as the primary news and information source for Ohio University. When visiting OHIO News, one can expect to read about the latest happenings at not only the Athens Campus, but at all of OHIO’s campuses and centers around the state.

OHIO News is updated daily and aims to be a creative, fun, informative and user-friendly news vehicle by sharing the stories that make the OHIO community a great place to be, whether you are studying, working or visiting. In addition to written stories and briefs, the site contains videos, photos, announcements, accolades and calendar events. Links to external Ohio University-affiliated news stories and the latest national higher education news is featured, too.

Many of the news stories that appear in OHIO News are distributed to Ohio University faculty, staff, friends and parents on Thursdays via the OHIO News e-mail. OHIO News stories also are featured on the University’s homepage and are promoted through the official Ohio University Twitter account, @ohiou.

In addition to OHIO News, the Communication Services team digitally distributes OHIO Employee News (OEN), which provides need-to-know information to Ohio University faculty and staff every Monday morning. The deadline to submit stories for inclusion in OEN is each Friday at noon. For more information, visit https://www.ohio.edu/ucm/communications/ohio-employee-news.

The Communication Services team also maintains the Campus Communicator Guide, a resource for communications professionals throughout the University that provides an overview of services, step-by-step guides to using tools like the OHIO News website, the Calendar of University Events (CUE) and the OHIO News style guide.
