10th Annual Golf Outing
The new location for our outing gave us the beautiful rolling hills of Hickory Hills Golf Club. We had a picture perfect August day for our 84 golfers who enjoyed a round of golf, raffle prizes, games, dinner, and drinks. Rufus was even there to take pictures and land the fairway with our ceremonial tee shot. We raised just shy of $4,000 for our Endowed Scholarship.
Bobcats at the Clippers
Tickets for the family friendly night out at the ballpark sold out quickly. It was a casual event that gave green and white garbed alumni and friends a chance enjoy a beautiful July evening out in Columbus. The group outing was even featured on the big screen!
Bobcats Beautification Day
In conjunction with Athens Beautification Day we joined the first ever nationwide Bobcat Beautification Day on April 14, 2019. In memory of a beloved and dedicated volunteer and friend, Marilyn Allen, we planted a Japanese cherry tree on the Ohio University Dublin Campus. The rain stopped just in time for the group to gather around the blossoming tree.
Bobcats at Blue Jackets
OU alumni attended Nationwide Arena to watch the Columbus Blue Jackets hosts the Edmonton Oilers on March 2. And while Edmonton won the game 4-0, attendees raised $100 for the chapter’s scholarship fund.
DXL Frisco Bowl Game Watch
We met at The Blarney Stone Tavern in Worthington to Stand Up and Cheer for our Bobcats. We had a good crowd for a Wednesday night during the holiday season and a great win! OHIO stole the game 27-0 over San Diego State.

Thirty Participate in First-ever Paint Night
The Chapter hosted its first-ever paint night at The pARTy Studio in Worthington on Sept 27, 2018.
There were plenty of laughs—and wine—as the group painted an Ohio University-inspired piece featuring the school’s Rufus logo.
The event also raised $300 for the Chapter’s scholarship fund.
Alumni Gather to Watch OHIOFootball Approximately 25 alumni descended on Skybox Sports Bar September 15, 2018 in Worthington to watch the Ohio University football team square off with the University of Virginia.
While the Cavaliers won the game 45-31, a good time was still had by all in attendance.
More Than 80 Attend Night Out at Clippers Game
The Chapter’s annual night out at Huntington Park took place on August 4, 2018.
The group networked while enjoying ballpark food and taking in the Clippers’ 5-4 victory over the Louisville Bats.
Golf Outing Raises More Than $2,000 for Scholarship Fund
The Ohio University Central Ohio Alumni Chapter’s annual golf outing was held July 28, 2018 at Oakhurst Country Club in Grove City. The event raised approximately $4,000 for the Chapter’s scholarship fund.
More than 80 people attended—as well as Rufus the Bobcat, who nailed the ceremonial first tee shot! The day was perfect for golf and attendees had fun taking to the course, participating in a long putt competition for Bobcat football season tickets, and a post golf dinner where all the participating teams left with prizes.
