Ohio Wesleyan kicked off the 2012-2013 academic year on Aug. 27. Before that time, we finished a successful summer break that included men’s soccer coach Jay Martin speaking before the Columbus Rotary and alumnus Ben Wallingford ’11 talking about his work with microfinancing in Kenya. Here’s to a great year!

OWU sports fans were dancing in the aisles to celebrate the men’s team taking the national title, OWU students were dancing in the atrium as they enjoyed the 2011 President’s Ball, and Terpsicorps members were dancing on stage in Gray Chapel. The semester also finished up with Jason Hiester’s “Civil War Reflections” and the traditional Midnight Breakfast, which included a gingerbread house-decorating contest. Sweet!
