From Cleveland to California: Class of ’63 celebrates Golden Reunion


The Ohio University Alumni Association (OUAA) hosted two events celebrating the class of 1963’s Golden Reunion, a term used to mark 50 years since graduating from OHIO. Bobcats gathered in Cleveland and Newport Beach, Calif. to celebrate this milestone.

39 alumni attended the reunion at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens, and 17 attended the reunion at the Island Hotel in Newport Beach, Calif. Story telling from the past lasted longer than the duration of the event as Bobcats re-connected with one another or connected for the first time. At the California event, a pair of freshmen roommates attended. After 50 years of time spent away from OHIO, they are best friends to this day.

California event attendees Marcia and Ed­Puera were touched by the reunion and reflected on their time at Ohio University while looking at old photos and exchanging memories with friends. The couple also attended the 2013 Homecoming Weekend in Athens and thoroughly enjoyed their time there as well.

In addition to reminiscing, the OUAA delivered news about campus renovation projects, current student accomplishments and the “On the Green Weekend” event being held in May. Alumni are ecstatic about having the chance to come back to campus after 50 years of absence for this special weekend, and look forward to seeing each other again soon.
