OWU in Review 2014


On the Ohio Wesleyan campus, 2014 has been a year of restoration and renovation. Edwards Gymnasium, Elliott Hall, Merrick Hall, Pfeiffer Natatorium (the soon-to-be Simpson Querrey Fitness Center), and the JAYwalk all receive significant improvements thanks to generous financial gifts from alumni, parents, and friends.

All is Bright…


But certainly not calm as excitement mounts in anticipation of the Ohio Wesleyan men’s soccer team playing in the NCAA Division III national tournament. The campus also came together December 1 to light the Hudler Memorial Christmas Tree, an OWU tradition since 2008.

A Festival of Lights…


…And a season of singing, dancing, belly-flopping, and football. In addition to studying hard, Ohio Wesleyan students are celebrating Diwali, the Festival of Lights, and participating in events such as A Cappellooza, Delta Zeta’s fundraising Dance-Off and Sigma Phi Epsilon’s belly flop competition, and the final football game of the 2014 season.

A Spooktacular October…


The end of October was a spirited one for the OWU campus! Students came together to support Chi Phi fraternity’s annual Chili Cook-Off and Kappa Kappa Gamma’s “Kappa Kakes” breakfast philanthropy, and the annual Halloween Costume Contest saw students and staff put on their best costumes to impress the judges. Spooktacular!

Sew, Sweet!


It’s more than just desserts at Ohio Wesleyan as Greek organizations turn whipped-cream pies and gooey, green gelatin into philanthropy; as colleagues surprise President Rock Jones with a birthday cake and candles; and as the Department of Theatre & Dance creates some delicious eye-candy costumes for its production of “The Merchant of Venice.”
