Calling all OHIO alumni: Celebrate Our Day with Ohio University on April 12!
Our Day is a day to celebrate Ohio University alumni around the world. Participate via social media posts, interaction with the Alumni Association's website or by attending events with local chapters.
Our Day began in 2011 when Ohio University alumni were encouraged to show their pride by wearing green and white and posting prideful statements on social media websites.
There are many ways to celebrate Our Day. Wear green and white or Bobcat gear. Look through old photos from your college days and post them to Facebook. Update your Facebook or Twitter with a post about Ohio (such as "Like this if you're a Bobcat!"). Download an OHIO-themed picture for your desktop wallpaper or add a Bobcat decal to your car. Call up an old roommate or connect with fellow alumni. Show your OHIO pride any way you can!
Certain chapters will host Our Day events on April 12 to celebrate:
Massachusetts Chapter Serving New England will host two events: Happy Hour at Incontro Restaurant in Metro West Boston Suburbs, 6-9 p.m. and a bowling party at Kings Bowling-Back Bay in Central Boston, 6-9 p.m. The chapter asks that you support their book drive for underserved children. Every OHIO alumnus who registers online for the event and donates a book will receive a small give-away thank you and will be entered in a raffle to win one of two Kindle Fires. For more information about these events, contact Dave Abram at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Chicago Alumni Chapter will host a Happy Hour at Side Bar Grill, 6-9 p.m. For more information about this event, contact Melissa French at email@example.com.
The Greater Los Angeles Chapter will host a Happy Hour at West 4th & Jane Gastropub in Santa Monica, 7-11 p.m. More information can be found on the events calendar page at ohioalumni.org.
