  • History & Memorable Moments

The Northwest Ordinance of 1800 called for educational institutions as part of the settlement and eventual statehood of the Northwest Territory: "Religion, morality, and knowledge being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged." In 1797, settlers from Marietta traveled up the Hocking River to establish a location for the school, choosing Athens due to its location directly between Chillicothe (the original capital of Ohio) and Marietta. At first called American Western University, Ohio University was founded on February 18, 1804, a year after Ohio was admitted to the Union. The first three students enrolled in 1808 . Ohio University graduated two students with bachelor's degrees in 1815 . The famous E.W. Scripps School of Journalism was established with a grant from the Scripps Foundation. In 1975, Ohio University opened the College of Osteopathic Medicine, which remains the only college in Ohio specializing in osteopathy. Today the university is known for its strong journalism and visual communication programs, as well as its Avionics Engineering Center. The Avionics Engineering Center, part of the Russ College of Engineering and Technology, specializes in the research, development, and evaluation of electronic navigation, communication, and surveillance systems. The center, the largest at Ohio University, was established in 1963 to support a combination of theoreticians, technical specialists and graduate students to study navigation issues encountered in air transportation.
