Ohio State Alumni Magazine is debuting a new look and a new attitude, fueled on Buckeye spirit.
Welcome to our gathering place. That’s the publication we believe we’ve created here for you, our honored guests, with this new Ohio State Alumni Magazine. You’re always invited, always welcome to spend time here, Buckeye to Buckeye.
By now, Eddie George has greeted you, whether from the cover of the magazine you’ve received in the mail or here, in our digital edition. And other hosts await throughout this issue: in an article about the great connections, many of them forged by alumni, that link our university and the city of Columbus; in an insider’s guide to the Ohio State Global Gateway city of Shanghai; in the day we spent with a recent graduate who has a fascinating career in New York City.
Voices such as these (and yours, we hope) resound in this and future issues of the magazine, because you’ve told us that’s what you want to see. In more than a year of research leading up to this new approach to the magazine, we heard what you treasure most: stories about our amazing Buckeye spirit and those about one another. That will be our emphasis in our quarterly print magazine and the additional content you find here.
Every day, we are struck by the loyalty and commitment you have for The Ohio State University. It may be one alumnus helping a student connect with the right job or internship. Or it could be alumni clubs across the country hosting summer send-offs to better prepare freshmen for their first semester on campus. The examples are endless.
We especially love how Eddie George, who is featured in this issue’s cover story, put it when asked what it means to him to be part of the Ohio State community. “It’s a lifetime relationship. This network is vast, it’s deep and it’s truly endearing. It’s a wonderful experience to be a Buckeye.”
Indeed, we are Buckeyes for life.
And here is our newest gathering place. Welcome.
