All About Athens
Home to OHIO’s residential campus, Athens has been named one of the nation’s best small college towns. The University and the city sit adjacent to one another where the University’s alumni gateway anchors the corner of Court and Union Streets in the heartbeat of Uptown (no one in Athens calls it “downtown”!). The walkable city is full of eclectic restaurants with locally-sourced food, great coffee shops that double as study spots, an active nightlife scene, and arts and culture opportunities.
