Carrie Miller ’11, Residential Life Coordinator for Hayes Hall and the SLUs, served as the event coordinator and met with a committee of Resident Assistants and Small Living Unit house members to organize the program.
On Sunday, October 3, masses of shivering community members braved the cold to take a stand against world hunger with the CROP Walk.

This year and for the first time, Ohio Wesleyan will be participating in “Up ’til Dawn,” a national letter-writing campaign to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The event, which takes place on October 21 in the Benes Rooms on campus from 5 p.m. to 12 a.m., was organized by students of Ohio Wesleyan who funded the entire program through sponsors, donations, and out-of-pocket contributions.
