Keeping Bobcats Informed, March 29, 2023

Wednesday, March 29, 2023

Bobcat Parents and Families,

I am thrilled to invite all of our Bobcat family members to campus this week for Moms Weekend. OHIO may be your student's home away from home, but we know that everything you have done for them, all of the support and encouragement that you have shown them throughout their lives until now, is what prepared them for this journey. I can't wait for you to experience what OHIO life is all about.

Starting Friday, there will be several events on campus for you and your student to enjoy. If you haven't already, start preparing for your visit by booking lodgingfinding campus parking, and scoping out where you can get your coffee fix—it'll be a long weekend!

Safe travels,

Kathy A Fahl, 
Dean of Students
