Bobcat Student Orientation

Hello Future Bobcats and Supporters,

Transitioning to college life at Ohio University's Athens Campus can feel like a big step, but our Bobcat Student Orientation (BSO) is here to support incoming students, as well as their families and guests, by making the transition to OHIO as seamless as possible. 

As part of the Office of First-Year & Student Transitions (FYrST), we're not just about helping you settle in — we're about setting you up for success. We want you to belong to the OHIO community, succeed as a new student, and take ownership of your college experience.

So, are you ready to embark on an exciting new chapter at Ohio University? We can't wait to welcome you home. Let's do this, together!
