Supporting the Program that Gave Us So Much

“Oh boy, do they have something over there in Athens?”

For almost six decades, more than 1,800 sports business professionals have called Athens home. Our affinity for Athens and what the program has given to us is infinite. Being a part of the #OHIOFamily does not end in Athens.

For many alumni, their relationships and careers have been directly impacted and fueled by their connection to the program. Whether it is with your cohort classmates, on-campus mentor or mentee, or through your mentorships gained through the alumni of the program, the #OhioFamily has been in our lives since we stepped foot in Athens.

Your support of the program fuels that next wave of Bobcats. Your gifts to our program allow us to give professional development, industry insight, and the opportunity to develop lifelong connections in the Bobcat Family to our current and future students. Those same opportunities that allowed us to build the best sports business program in the world, those same opportunities that allowed us to put more than 1,800 alumni in the sports industry.

As we move forward this year, we ask that you recall the memories you made in Athens, we ask that you look back on your time with your classmates, nights on Court Street, cold fall days, working Bobcat football games, and of course, long days (and sometimes nights) in the classroom studying next to your classmates. Finally, we ask that – if you can – you financially help the program provide the same experience that you had as a part of the #1 Sports Business Program in the world!

Thank you alumni, current students, and friends of the program for your unwavering support of the #OHIOFamily over all these years. Go Bobcats!
