Mid-Semester Break Is At Its End

Hello to all! I hope for those of you on campus you had an enjoyable break and were able to recuperate from Mid-terms! For those who are NOT on campus (be it you are still a high school student or perhaps you are an alumnus) I hope these past few weeks of transition into Autumn have been kind to you.

OWU is covered in the golden and fiery leaves that I’ve grown to love. In Colorado we aren’t able to see a bunch of the different colors that signal the changing of the seasons as most our trees are Pine or Aspen and stay relatively green year round. And while it is beautiful to see those green leaves and pines buried beneath inches upon inches of fluffy white snow, these burning colors remind me of Tennessee and are wonderful.

There have been quite a few young visitors to our campus in the past couple of weeks and I want to welcome any of those prospective students who may have any questions to please send them my way! I am more than happy to help you out :) We were fortunate enough to have a couple field hockey recruits who were astoundingly sweet and as excited about OWU as we are!

For those of you who have midterms this week, I hope you were able to get at least some studying done over break so you wont have to be cramming now! Good luck to all of you with big things coming up and for those of you who find yourself with a temporary break, enjoy these all-too-quickly-gone days and breathe.

Best of luck with everything and remember to stay healthy!

Sincerely,

Karson Stevenson

Another Weekly Update!

Greetings all! I hope everyone is in good health. With the changing of the seasons comes a tendency of colds and other bugs to spread so please try and keep healthy! OWU’s bug/flu season seems to be moving downhill (it’s hiatus seemed to be last week) and the campus is on the mend.

This past week was Homecoming Week and there was a fantastic turn-out of alumni present to join in the celebrations. There were activities everyday at lunch, including t-shirt tie-dyes and casting ballots for homecoming royalty. Several esteemed alumni presented lectures as well and the Benes Room hosted a Munch and Mingle on Friday the provided students the chance to meet with alumni and inquire about life after Ohio Wesleyan, as well as learn about new career opportunities. Saturday saw a victory for the Battling Bishops Football team with a score of 50-7 against Allegheny. Many alumni, faculty, students, and other guests also participated in after a successful Pumpkin Run 5K early Saturday morning.

Mid-semester break is approaching fast, so work hard now with that as your motivation. Everyone, stay as warm and dry as you can and enjoy the beautiful transition into autumn! As always, please don’t hesitate to send any questions or comments my way. Good luck with your endeavors!

Yours truly,

Karson A. Stevenson
