Ohio University Alumni Journals
The alumni magazines, located in the Ohio University Archives, are by far the best comprehensive resource for exploring changes over time at Ohio University since 1893. Over the past years, stories in these magazines have kept alumni, administrators, faculty, staff, students, and other interested readers informed about current and past university building projects, special events, research successes, and exciting new methods in academic instruction. Student life, especially trends in enrollment, sports events, social movements, and student politics, as well as the university's plans for its future, have also been well documented within the pages of these magazines.
The alumni journal appeared under several titles over the years: Ohio University Bulletin (1893-1923), The Ohio Alumnus (1923-1970), Ohio University Alumni Journal (1970-1978), Ohio University Today (1978-1999), and Ohio Today (1999-). It continues to be published as Ohio Today (available here through 2001). The series also includes occasional special issues such as The Ohio University Alumnus Magazine, Alumni Directory, Special Report, and Report of Annual Giving.
Future additions: We hope to add Ohio Today issues from 2001 on, soon, as well as Ohio Women.
Access is through the Internet Archive.
