OU’s Black Alumni Reunion 2025 committees announce dates


ATHENS – Ohio University’s Black Alumni Reunion will return to the Athens campus in spring 2025. The BAR 2025 Alumni Committee, Campus Committee and the Ohio University Alumni Association are working closely together to plan a reunion that will welcome more than a thousand alumni and friends for the triennial celebration in Athens from Thursday, April 10, through Sunday, April 13, 2025.

The BAR 2025 Alumni Committee identified the spring weekend after thoughtful discussion and with input from partners across campus and the Athens community.

Immediately following BAR 2022, a fall weekend was tentatively set aside for 2025. When that weekend was later announced as when the OU Bobcats would take on The Ohio State University Buckeyes in an away football game, BAR organizers began to consider alternative options for the reunion.

The alumni committee kicked off its work in March and identified the following principles to guide their planning, as well as that of the Campus Committee and the OUAA:






The Alumni Committee also outlined three primary goals for BAR 2025:

-Reconnect with one another and OU

-Celebrate amazing alumni

-Connect with and mentor current students and one another

The weekend will feature a mix of casual and formal events – from networking and learning opportunities to entertaining and festive occasions.
