Ohio UPC: About Us

Known as "UPC", the University Program Council is a volunteer board of students who work to bring innovative programs to the Ohio University Campus. Our programming efforts are targeted to all members of the university community. We are structured to provide cultural, social, recreational, educational, and entertainment programs. While Athens is not Hollywood or Broadway, we work to attract the best artists available to Ohio University. Students are encouraged to get involved in UPC as a means to meet new people, develop personal/professional skills, and to become an active member of the University community.
