Friday marks final bell for Ohio State's quarter system

This week marks the final week of classes on the quarter system at Ohio State. As part of the semester conversion, the university will be permanently disabling the bells that ring between classes.

The final bell will ring at 4:18 p.m. on Friday (6/1). Ohio State is one of the few schools that still uses bells, and although many classes begin and end at times other than 18 and 30 minutes past the hour, the bell system doesn’t allow variations.

On semesters, there will be no bells between classes. The university’s summer semester begins June 18.
