Welcome to a new academic year

The following message was sent to all Ohio State students, faculty and staff on Tuesday, August 23, 2022.


Dear Buckeyes,

Welcome to the start of another academic year at Ohio State. Whether you’re returning to campus after summer break or enjoying the energy that each new autumn brings, I am excited to celebrate our university’s many traditions and advance all the good we do each day, together.

As always, please know that our caring community is here for you. Our university remains committed to supporting healthy, safe and inclusive campuses — including by providing resources to help you care for yourself and each other. I encourage you to take advantage of them throughout the year.

Best wishes for an outstanding fall semester. I hope you’ll join me in taking in all that makes Ohio State a community like no other!

Sincerely yours,

Kristina M. Johnson, PhD
