“A Night in Athens… in Pittsburgh” [Photo Essay]


More than 275 Ohio University alumni and friends gathered at the Fairmont Hotel on Market in Pittsburgh, Pa. on May 7th for a special alumni event developed by the Ohio University Alumni Association (OUAA) and co-hosted by the Pittsburgh Regional The Promise Lives Campaign Committee.

Some 1,897 OHIO Alumni live in the city of Pittsburgh. An unprecedented 14 percent of them came out for this event – which wasn’t just any event in a hotel ballroom. Themed “A Night in Athens… in Pittsburgh,” the OUAA recreated the OHIO and Athens experience 202 miles from the College Green.

“Bobcats are special and so is the ‘Burgh.’ Put the two together, and you have one magical evening!” said Jennifer Neubauer, assistant vice president for Alumni Relations and executive director of the OUAA. “A Night in Athens in Pittsburgh certainly didn’t disappoint as the largest event the Association has hosted in that region. Special thanks go out to our chapter volunteers who worked diligently to promote the event and have – in the days following – fielded many emails from enthusiastic alumni wishing to become more involved.”

In fact, the Pittsburgh Chapter already has planned a follow-up happy hour for all area alumni on Thursday, June 5 starting at 6 p.m. at Olive or Twist located at 140 6th St. in Pittsburgh (registration is not required).

Take a look at some of memorable moments from “A Night in Athens…”.
