  • Letter from the President

    I think it appropriate to begin my last letter as President the same way I did my first. I continue to be struck with what an honor and privilege it is to serve as president of this organization. Over the past two years I have had the pleasure of meeting a number of our members and am constantly reminded of what each and every one of them sacrificed to better their sport, the university and Varsity O. Many people may not realize that VO has been around for more than 100 years.

  • Letter from the President

    Sacs, Vogs, Jake, Sto, Ports, Swi, Big E, Little Vogs; the list is endless. My son used to ask me why none of my friends had regular names. I had to pause and think about it. I guess they did; it's just that over the years the names gave way to the relationships that were built at OSU. Relationships that continue to exist today because we all were blessed with the opportunity to wear the Scarlet and Gray. An opportunity that built into relationships.

    Dear Varsity "O",

    My name is Adam Homan and I am a member of the football team at Ohio State. I am extremely grateful for your gift of a scholarship in honor of Mr. Larry Zelina. This makes it possible for me to graduate with a degree in Exercise Science Education in May of 2013. Thank you so much!

    Go Bucks!
