It's Homecoming week at OHIO! Though we're sad not to see the Bobcat family on campus, we're excited to see Bobcats connect virtually. You'll see some familiar faces of Orientation Leaders and their families in this video.

Family knows no boundaries, and the same is true for our Bobcat Family.

Even though #OHIOHC2020 looks different this year, we can’t wait to see how all of our alumni are celebrating across the world, and hope to see you back on the bricks next year!

But for now, check out this video and remember, we are #ForeverOHIO ⬇️

No doubt about it. Our professors do some amazing things!

Congrats to OHIO’s Dr. Larry Witmer and the Witmer Lab for being featured in National Geographic Magazine's October cover story!

The article shares how Witmer and his lab use modern animals, including crocodiles and birds, to better understand dinosaurs and other extinct creatures. 🦕🦖🐊

By using high-tech computed tomography (CT) scans, 3D computer visualization software and pioneering groundbreaking techniques, the lab can evaluate a fossil and fill in missing pieces like soft tissues and muscles to learn how that dinosaur would have functioned when it was alive.
