For 33 years, the Ohio Wesleyan men’s soccer team has shared a relationship of friendship and fussball with the city of Baumholder, Germany. Every three years, the Bishops, led by coach Jay Martin, make the trip overseas to visit the citizens who have become their friends and play a little soccer.
Ohio Wesleyan University professors John Krygier, Ph.D., and David Walker, Ph.D., will lead a collaborative project funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Five Colleges of Ohio Next Steps in the Next Generation Library: Integrating Digital Collections into the Liberal Arts Curriculum to create digital versions of rare, historic real estate atlas maps of Columbus neighborhoods. Their grant was written for The Five Colleges of Ohio, which includes OWU, Denison University, Kenyon College, The College of Wooster, and Oberlin College. This is a curricular collaboration project between faculty and the Ohio Wesleyan Library.
