Even more than the official seal for the University of Virginia, which contains elements of that commonwealth's seal, the seal for Ohio University draws heavily from that state's seal.

The UVa seal appears to feature the figure Virtus, also seen in slightly different pose on the seal for the Commonwealth of Virginia.
