A First Look at
OHIO’s New
Marketing Campaign

“The marketing campaign will be a key part of our ongoing efforts to elevate the OHIO brand,” said Renea Morris, executive director of UCM. “It will include new television commercials as well as print advertisements and Web components. Our goal is to both enhance admissions recruitment efforts and build on the sense of pride that our current students, faculty, staff, and alumni have in Ohio University.”

Several OHIO alumni are among the members of the UCM creative team developing the marketing campaign.

Bobcat Caravan
2013 Review

More than 440 Bobcat fans attended this year’s six Bobcat Caravans with Coach Solich and Coach Christian. Hosted by OHIO Athletics for the fifth year, the Bobcat Caravans are designed to build relationships with Bobcat supporters around the state of Ohio. Each caravan was free to attend and included food, non-alcoholic beverages, prizes and photo opportunities. The caravans also served as an opportunity for attendees to hear from Ohio University Alumni Association board and chapter members. Click here for details of the May 9 Bobcat Caravan in Cleveland.
