The Ohio State University Alumni Club of Southwest Virginia was chartered on September 18, 1998 and is home to approximately 700 Buckeyes who live within a 60 mile radius of Roanoke. Our Constitution was last updated in 2014. The club is focused on advancing the interests of The Ohio State University and The Ohio State University Alumni Association. We strive to establish closer fellowship among alumni friends and former students.
