Coming Home for Alumni Weekend 2014


For those Ohio Wesleyan alumni who celebrated their reunions at Alumni Weekend earlier this month, it was a special time to experience and savor the excitement of a college campus in motion, and celebrate the lives and accomplishments of dear OWU friends.

Ohio Wesleyan University seniors Kelsey Ullom and Rachel Vinciguerra will be packing their bags for Haiti after they graduate. Beginning in June, they will serve for one year as volunteer coordinators for the Pwoje Espwa orphanage in Les Cayes, Haiti.

Ohio Wesleyan University was the site of a one-day symposium April 23 that drew bird enthusiasts and experts to campus to celebrate “Alexander Wilson and the Making of American Ornithology.”

We know it is time for Alumni Weekend when…the green grass and fragrance of the flowers beckon throughout the day and when the excitement generated by Commencement is matched by the thoughts of welcoming hundreds of Ohio Wesleyans sons and daughters—and their families—back to campus.
