Virtual programming guide for clubs and societies

As we adjust to the profound changes we’re experiencing due to COVID-19, we’re finding new ways to connect with our fellow Buckeyes. We’ve created a guide including some ideas here for category-one events, how to utilize OSUAA resources and more.

Dear Alumni Group Leaders,

We hope you’re safe and well. Our goal is to keep you informed during these challenging and uncertain times.

The university has canceled or indefinitely postponed all events through June 30, 2020 and will revisit programming at that point. We will not be able to provide event support through the end of June, which includes organizing speakers, designing and sending communications, and having OSUAA team members attend events.

We hope you’ll act in unity with the university and suspend all in-person events through June 30. Please note that we will be honoring your FY20 tiered status for FY21, unless you’ve already moved up a level.

To help maintain connections, we hope to have virtual programming ideas for you by mid-April.

Please reach out to your REO or society liaison if you have any questions regarding non-event communication needs.

Be safe and be well!

Hello Group Leaders,

From all of us at the alumni association, we hope this message finds you well during this uncertain time. We’re reaching out to provide some clarity in light of rapidly changing Covid-19 information.

Please know that your Scarlet or Gray status in FY21 will not be affected by events that have been canceled. Any event canceled or planned between now and the end of the fiscal year will be counted toward your requirements.

We are honoring the CDC’s recommendation that gatherings not be held in the coming weeks. For those events that have yet to be canceled, we will not be providing communications or promotional assistance. Please understand that the well-being of our Buckeyes is our top concern. 

If you have questions, please call your REO or society liaison.

Thank you for your understanding, and be well.

How firm thy friendship,


Craig Little
Director, Alumni Engagement
