Exclusive Auto Discounts for OHIO University Alumni, Faculty & Staff

Nationwide Billboard

The Nationwide Insurance/OUAA partnership gained more visibility this past month when three co-branded billboards were unveiled. Billboards are located around Athens County courtesy of Bickle Insurance Services located on Columbus Rd in Athens, Ohio.

OUAA began a partnership with Nationwide Insurance in December 2012. Since the development of this partnership, more than 1,300 OHIO alumni have saved money on their auto insurance by taking advantage of an alumni discount. Along with passing on savings to OHIO alumni, Nationwide Insurance has sponsored several OHIO events and activities, including Homecoming, Alumni Leaders Conference, Bobcat Caravans, Cruise-in at the Convo, and Chapter golf outings and sports teams.
