Bobcats past and present are ready to hit the bricks for Homecoming 2019, a week dedicated to celebrating the shared history and ties that bind all members of the Ohio University community while relishing in those experiences and memories that make OHIO unique to you.

The Ohio University Alumni Association’s largest event of the year, Homecoming Week 2019 kicks off Monday, Oct. 7, and runs through Saturday, Oct. 12. The theme of this year’s festivities is “1804 and So Much More,” uniting town and gown in commemorating the 215-year legacy of Ohio’s first and finest university and celebrating the progress OHIO has and will continue to make.

“Whether you are an Ohio University graduate, a student, an employee or a friend, this year’s Homecoming theme serves as a reminder that you are a part of this community’s storied past, its present and its future,” said Erin Essak Kopp, assistant vice president of alumni relations and executive director of the Ohio University Alumni Association. “Homecoming is a special time for each of us to celebrate the legacy of excellence and camaraderie that defines what it means to be a Bobcat while reconnecting with our individual OHIO stories and traditions – and making some new ones.”

In the spirit of Homecoming and the theme of this year’s festivities, the Alumni Association is sponsoring an Instagram contest calling on Bobcat alumni and friends to share their OHIO tradition for a chance to win a free two-night stay at the Ohio University Inn during Homecoming 2020. Now through 5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 13, 2019, OHIO alumni and friends who post a photo that captures their OHIO tradition on the OHIO Alumni Instagram page with the hashtags #OHIOHC2019 and #OHIOtraditions will be entered in the contest, with the winner to be announced on Monday, Oct. 14. For contest details and rules, click here.
