Holiday shopping with the Alumni Association

Shop the online Bobcat Store for the holidays. The Ohio University Alumni Association (OUAA) offers more than 250 OHIO products, including: apparel, jewelry, gift sets, diploma frames, and home and office items. OUAA proudly partners with several local and national businesses to develop unique OHIO products for alumni, students, faculty and staff.

"When researching new store items, we turn to local and alumni-owned businesses first, such as Loralie's Baking Co. and Athens Block Studio. While it is highly important to fund the initiatives of the Alumni Association, giving back to the OHIO community is always an added bonus," said OUAA's Assistant Director for Strategic Partnerships Amy McKee.

Two of the most recent local collaborations are with Athens Block Studio and Passion Works Studio. Bobcat Store shoppers can customize Athens Block-inspired tiles with their name and graduation year, as well as purchase green & white passion and paper flowers to incorporate a piece of Athens in their home or office. Other exclusive products include: pewter campus-inspired holiday ornaments, the Bobcat bobblehead, an OHIO fire pit and Loralie's OHIO brownies.

The past holiday season was the most successful in the Bobcat Store's history. More than 500 orders were placed in December 2011. OUAA anticipates exceeding last year's sales and aims to set a new record of website visits during this year's holiday season. The best news is that all proceeds from the store support alumni programs and activities. Order by December 17 for guaranteed Christmas delivery.
