The 2020 Orientation Guide

Welcome to Ohio University,
your new home away from home.

The bricks, streets and buildings that lie in Athens and surround OU’s campus contain 216 years of magical memories and exciting experiences waiting for you to add your own. Though these times have never been more uncertain, you can take solace in the fact that you will be a bobcat, just like the rest of us.

Navigating college can be tricky, which is why we at The Post, one of OU’s many fabulous student-run publications, have compiled this guide for you as an incoming freshman. Here you will find tons of helpful information, such as how to get involved on campus, adjust to college life or where to find a bite to eat. The opportunities and roads you can take are endless, and we cannot wait to meet you in the fall.

Warm regards,
The Post staff
