Bobcat Parents & Families,
I feel incredibly proud. This weekend, we will watch our seniors walk across the stage at commencement — a moment they have worked so hard to achieve. This year’s graduating class has been exceptional representatives of the OHIO community for their dedication to leadership, community service, and overall academic achievement.
It has been my pleasure to watch these students grow and learn and I can’t wait to see what these impressive Bobcats do out in the world.
With Bobcat pride,
Kathy A Fahl, MSW
Dean of Students

OIT TECH TIPS
Detect malicious messages
As you check your email, pay close attention to the addresses sending you messages. Even if an email looks like it was sent from your manager or instructor, it may still be a spoofing attempt. Check to ensure messages aren’t sent from a variation of an OHIO email (eg, @ohio-edu.org instead of @ohio.edu). Review these tips for identifying malicious email.
