Updates from your alumni society president

Dear fellow alumni and friends,

We are midway through the registration period for the Oct. 5 homecoming tailgate and game vs. Michigan State.  

If you have not yet purchased a ticket for the homecoming game and would like to, there is a limited number still available for AROTC alumni. Please contact Engagement Services at 1-800-762-5646 for more information.

Registration remains open for the 4:30 p.m. tailgate meal, at a good price of $15.  Chairs and tables will be available for your comfort. We’ll also distribute information and souvenirs surrounding the year-long Ohio State sesquicentennial celebration. To learn more, and to sponsor a cadet, visit the event page.  

At the tailgate, you will also have the opportunity to meet our newest board members, retired Col. Jim Watkins (’70) and Col. John Stahl (’89).

Retired Col. Watkins will travel from his home in Georgia to join the fun. He is a 2003 Hall of Fame Inductee.

Col. Stahl is in his final months of pre-retirement activities, having served his final active duty as the Active Army Advisor to the Ohio National Guard.  

Finally, at the Ohio State Alumni Association’s Club and Society Leadership Symposium on Sept. 6, our society received two awards. Read more here.

Buckeyes Lead The Way!


David Greer (’67), President
