The schedule for On The Green Weekend (OTG), the Ohio University Alumni Association’s spring Homecoming held May 18-22 and featuring academics and the arts, has been finalized.

For the first time, the Cruise In at the Convo will be held during OTG. The classic car show is the OU Alumni Varsity Band’s annual fundraiser to support the Marching 110.

Also new in 2016 is a special Concert Under the Elms, karaoke night, all-new Alumni College courses and Film Festival showings, and a Professional Development Conference for young alumni.

On The Green Weekend is scheduled for May 18-22, 2016 and events are open to the entire OU community, including Athens residents, current students, faculty, staff and alumni returning to campus.

Here is a look at what’s in store for OTG 2016:

Wednesday (May 18): Early birds kick off the weekend with campus and historical tours or leadership meetings.

Thursday (May 19): Attend a welcome reception and the 1966 Film Festival. Go back to the classroom for Alumni College courses on technology, health, popular culture and more. In the evening, head to College Green and catch a Concert Under the Elms.

Saturday (May 21): The weekend shifts into high gear. Lace up your sneakers for the Bobcat Dash 5K or roll through the Cruise In at the Convo, and attend the OTG BBQ.
