The largest-ever alumni event outside of Athens brought a little OHIO to Cleveland. More than 450 Ohio University alumni and friends gathered at the Cleveland Marriott Downtown at Key Center on July 18th for a special alumni event in conjunction with the annual summer meeting of The Ohio University Foundation Board of Trustees. This wasn’t just any event in a hotel ballroom. Themed “A Night in Athens … in Cleveland,” the OUAA took the opportunity to recreate the OHIO and Athens experience 215 miles from College Green.
