Multicultural Visit Program (MVP)

Monday, November 4 2019 10:00am

OHIO's Multicultural Visit Program (MVP) is a one-day visit to Ohio University's Athens Campus for college-bound students who are seniors in high school. You will have the opportunity to speak with Ohio University faculty, staff administrators, and students about your plans for college and beyond.
