OHIO Up Close is an open house for admitted high school seniors, and it’s the perfect time to check out campus, meet the Bobcat community, and learn about all we have to offer both academically and socially.  Families arriving the evening before Up Close events are invited to join admissions staff at a dessert reception. Details will be provided during registration.
