Spring Semester at OWU has been fun, productive, celebratory, and busy—and we’re not even halfway through the semester!
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!
Prospective students are recognized for their academic achievements during two recent visit programs—the Schubert Scholars Competition and Celebration of Excellence. Meanwhile, OWU’s seniors celebrate their Countdown to Commencement and the men’s soccer team is acknowledged for its NCAA Division III national championship with presentations from Delaware City Council and from Ohio Rep. Andrew Brenner (R-Delaware).
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!
Recent Ohio Wesleyan events included President Rock Jones cooking dinner for students to nourish the body and OWU International Student Ambassadors from Ghana, India, Japan, and Vietnam nourishing young minds by sharing information about their culture with fourth-graders at Delaware City Schools’ Schultz Elementary.
