[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he Ohio University Alumni Association (OUAA) is hard at work preparing for its second-ever On The Green Weekend: a Spring Homecoming centered on academics and the arts. The weekend will be jam-packed with activities for the entire Bobcat community.
“On The Green will celebrate everything there is to love about Athens in the spring,” said Dawn Werry, director of external relations for the Alumni Association. “Alumni are able to take fascinating courses offered by faculty experts, mingle on College Green, dine at our eclectic restaurants Uptown and so much more.”
The events will kick off on Wednesday, May 27 with various tours throughout Athens and on campus, including the Underground Railroad, the “Little Cities of the Black Diamond” and OHIO’s very own College of Fine Arts gallery.
On Thursday, May 28, OHIO alumni and friends are invited to enjoy a complimentary breakfast at Nelson Dining Hall, attend an Alumni College luncheon and watch the highlighted 1965 Filmfest at The Athena. A welcome reception and balloon release will finish off the night with food, music and entertainment.
The Alumni Leader’s Conference will take place throughout the weekend, starting on Friday, May 29. That morning, attendees can enjoy college-hosted breakfasts and a unique lunch presented by the Diversity Alumni Advisory Board. Friday evening the Putnam County Spelling Bee will take place in the Baker University Theatre, along with the Filmfest showcasing 1975 movies at The Athena.
