Bobcat Student Orientation

As a unit of the Office of First-Year & Student Transitions (FYrST), Bobcat Student Orientation (BSO) is responsible for the successful orientation of all new undergraduate students at Ohio University's Athens campus. Our programs are designed to ensure all students and their families/guests are welcomed, 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.

We strive to create a welcoming environment where students have a sense of belonging and can easily connect to peers, faculty, and staff to establish a network of support. We accomplish this through intentional program design and assessment focused primarily on the student experience, by eliminating stress in the transition process and maintaining a service-oriented mindset.
