As part of Ohio University’s response to the global coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19), it is with great sadness we announce all OHIO alumni events have been canceled through June 30, 2020. 

This decision is in line with the University’s steps to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 among our entire OHIO community. Our top priority is to keep our community safe throughout this rapidly evolving situation.
