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!

Reasons to Smile…

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…

The Ohio Wesleyan University campus is buzzing with activity this summer. Thanks to OWU donors and friends, work is under way to improve the Jay Martin Soccer Complex (Roy Rike Field), the Hamilton-Williams Food Court, and Edwards Gymnasium. We also celebrated our hourly employees with a special luncheon. Can you believe that fall semester is just a month away?!

Ohio Wesleyan kicked off the 2012-2013 academic year on Aug. 27.

Here’s to a great year!
