was originally made up of two student run organizations...
The Men’s “O Association” was created over one hundred years ago and the Women’s “Varsity O” was created in 1926. They were both strong organizations built upon Ohio Athletic pride and loyalty. The association was reinstated in 2012 as Varsity OHIO. Then relaunched and rebrand with its membership structure in 2019. Varsity OHIO is a prestigious organization exclusive to Ohio University former student-athletes, athletic trainers, spirit squad and managers. Our goal is to increase membership, awareness and establish life-long bonds between former teammates, friends and Ohio University.
The mission of Varsity OHIO is to develop and enrich the relationships between athletics alumni and our athletics programs. It is our goal to promote and strengthen Ohio University Athletics and current student-athletes with the help and encouragement of our alumni. We will work to carry on the Ohio University tradition in pursuit of excellence, competition and success within all our sports.
The Legacy membership is a symbol of Varsity OHIO and how its members helped to build Ohio Athletics during their time here. Through this membership, Varsity OHIO members can now continue building the foundation of Ohio Athletics and its legacy for future Bobcats.
