A beautiful fall weekend set the scene for Ohio Wesleyan’s 2014 Homecoming Weekend, celebrated October 24-26.
The beautiful autumn leaves hit peak color during the best time of year at Ohio Wesleyan, the Department of Theatre & Dance entertained the campus with “The Merchant of Venice,” and the Spirit and Homecoming Committee (SHO) organized fun activities for Homecoming Week, including cookie decorating and banner making. OWU and cookies, too? Delicious!
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.”
Delaware’s Fourth of July celebration included the Central Ohio Symphony performing on the Ohio Wesleyan campus, with 2014 graduate Hillary Fowler singing “The Star-Spangled Banner,” and an Ohio Machine lacrosse game at Selby Stadium. Other scenes of summer include a look at the new turf in Selby and work to renovate Elliott Hall and replace roofs at two OWU fraternities.
From being named Executive of the Year, to earning a Centennial Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching, to receiving a Planetary Sciences Journalism Award, to earning the 2014 Grand Prize Laureate award from the Fukuoka Prize – Ohio Wesleyan alumni are being recognized for these and countless other achievements.
