Leader of OUAA recognizes alumni, OHIO community for successful ‘On The Green Weekend’


I’d like to offer a big “Thank You!” to the myriad people and teams that made the Ohio University Alumni Association’s inaugural "On The Green Weekend" event a resounding success! My deep appreciation goes to The Ohio University Alumni Association staff and Board, Ohio University President Roderick J. McDavis and Vice President of University Advancement and President & CEO of The Ohio University Foundation J. Bryan Benchoff for their support of this new initiative. I also want to thank the faculty and staff who presented courses for Alumni College and the Athens Uptown business owners who opened their doors to OHIO alumni and friends. I also extend my appreciation to the OHIO campus community—everyone in facilities, catering and event services—who helped to make our alumni feel welcomed and at home while they visited their beloved alma mater during this beautiful springtime event in Athens. Special thanks also goes to regional campuses and deans whose contributions to the weekend were integral to its success. Finally, I want to thank all the attendees, without whom this event would not have been possible.  We can’t wait to see you at our next “On The Green Weekend,” May 29-31, 2015.

Watch for recaps and photo essays from the weekend appearing in Compass soon! And go Bobcats!

Warmly,

Jennifer Neubauer
