More Koreans know of Dr. Horace Newton Allen than residents of Ohio or even Delaware, where he was born and raised. Twenty-one Koreans visited Delaware during the week of February 14 to join members of the First Presbyterian Church to recognize Allen and celebrate the end of a year-long celebration of the church’s 200th anniversary.

Learning to be Leaders

On an early Saturday morning in February, 90 Ohio Wesleyan students braved the snow and cold temperatures to come together for a morning of empowerment, self-discovery, and entertainment. These students were participating in the annual OWU Summit, a leadership conference designed to help students develop their skills so that they may be more effective leaders both on and off campus. This year the event took place on February 5, and drew more than 90 students representing 45 of about 100 campus organizations. Students attended a dynamic opening session by Tony D’Angelo from Collegiate EmPowerment, an educational firm dedicated to providing inspiring and informative seminars and services to students and professionals, followed by two workshop sessions geared toward helping students enhance their leadership skills.

Ohio Wesleyan’s neuroscience program which was founded in 1994, has been named to honor a distinguished OWU professor and Ohio Wesleyan’s provost since 2005, David Robbins. The program, now called the David O. Robbins Neuroscience Program, recognizes his many accomplishments since joining OWU’s faculty in 1973. Enhancements to the program are being supported with a five-year, $5 million gift from Ohio Wesleyan graduates George H. ’61 and Patsy Belt ’63 Conrades.
