Black Alumni Reunion

Black Alumni Reunion, Sept. 27-29, 2013
What is it?
The Black Alumni Reunion is a weekend-long celebration held every three years on the main campus of Ohio University to honor the rich tradition of African American heritage at the university.

Black Alumni Reunion Planning Committee:
As we know, an event like BAR, takes a team of committed individuals to make it a huge success. The BAR Committee consists of various alumni, current students, and campus faculty/staff. Committee selection is based on past participation in Black Alumni Reunions or other Alumni committees and events, as well as drawing upon the leadership activities of current students and organizations.

BAR Information:
Visit our site often as updates become available for all Black Alumni Reunion planning: ohioalumni.org/black-alumni-reunion. For more information on the Black Alumni Reunion, contact the Ohio University Alumni Association at 740-593-4300 or e-mail Kellea Tibbs at tibbs@ohio.edu.

Special Thanks

It's been a "sell out" year at OUAA, and we couldn't have done it without the help and leadership of many of you who are reading this today. Thank you. As the Promise Campaign continues to climb closer to the goal, the Regional Campaign events, created to help share the campaign's messages across the geographical areas, have been tremendous success stories.

Cleveland's "Bobcats Up Close" with over 100 attendees; the Marching 110 at the Ohio Theater sold-out at 150; South West Ohio's "Bobcats at the Ballpark" sold-out with 229 in attendance. Homecoming and the Alumni Awards Gala, along with Bobcat Bashes, beginning with Penn State and the others, have all been sell-outs. Literally, everything that was planned sold out!

We hope that you'll continue to help us celebrate our future success stories in the coming year. At the same time, we invite you to welcome Jennifer Neubauer, OUAA's new Assistant Vice President and Executive Director. The entire staff is looking forward to her arrival on December 3rd, and we hope that you get to meet her at one of the many events planned for the coming year! Happy Holidays!
