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.
Ohio Wesleyan’s Academic Affairs Office carved pumpkins during a recent lunch, with Provost Chuck Stinemetz contributing the OWU design. And OWU’s East Asia Studies and International Studies programs sponsored a visit from Oberlin College’s Taiko drummers. It’s a cornucopia of sights and sounds at Ohio Wesleyan this fall!
The OWU family got together for Family Weekend and Homecoming Weekend, and the Battling Bishop took a cue from Where’s Waldo, showing up with President Rock Jones at a local elementary school and with his fellow mascots at the Ohio Statehouse. Combine these photos with some eye-catching images of OWU transitioning into fall, and you’ve got lots of reasons to smile…
