Hello and welcome to Gateway Day at Ohio University. This admitted student virtual event will help you learn more about our historic institution and why our students love being Bobcats. Here, you'll meet some of our students and faculty and learn more about Athens, which was voted the best college town in the United States. But that's not all. You will also find information about our regional campuses and centers, explore the academic colleges, and find out what life is like for student Bobcats. In addition, you will learn about our wide array of diversity and inclusion programming, and you will determine the next steps for your admitted student including funding and financial aid.
I chose to focus my career path on education because I love teaching. And I'm proud to be here at Ohio University where students are the focal point of everything we do. Our students know that their experiences here stay with them for life. The Bobcat community not only equips students for careers, but also actively supports their future journey every step of the way, forever. Thank you again for being here. I hope you enjoy Ohio Gateway Day and I look forward to seeing you on one of our campuses very soon.
