Dear Monarch Nation:

At Old Dominion University, we have a proven history of providing transformative experiences in and out of the classroom. We have excelled in many areas and have a legacy of impact and success in competition, especially with regard to athletics.

At this time, a number of Conference USA (C-USA) schools are having discussions with members of the American Athletic Conference (AAC) for potential league membership within the AAC. As a C-USA member, ODU officials are tracking these discussions and activities. We are also actively engaged in a number of conversations to ensure the long-term viability and attractiveness of C-USA for ODU, especially our student-athletes and dedicated fans.

By working together with our partners at C-USA, we are optimistic about attracting additional members with a regional benefit to ODU, resulting in less travel and greater competition, for many years to come. GO MONARCHS!

With Monarch Pride,

Brian O. Hemphill, Ph.D.
