COLUMBUS, Ohio – Each year over 5,000 individuals and corporations support Ohio State student-athletes as members of the Buckeye Club. In appreciation and recognition of their loyalty and commitment, the Ohio State Department of Athletics has identified the week of October 11th as Thank You Week 2015.

“Buckeye Club supporters have provided a solid foundation of support for Ohio State Athletics through their generous contributions” said Gene Smith, Director of Athletics. “The first class experience we are able to provide our student-athletes is directly related to this annual support.”

Each day of Thank You Week will focus on highlighting and recognizing particular people and projects that directly impact over 1,000 Buckeye student-athletes in 36 sports. Additionally, videos will be sent out featuring Buckeye student-athletes to current members of the Buckeye Club highlighting the impact of their giving. The annual Buckeye Club Reception will be held on October 17th prior to the home football game in the French Field House to culminate Thank You Week 2015.
