"We want everyone to wear their favorite Ohio University shirt or sweatshirt on Fridays when they come to campus in either Lancaster or Pickerington," said Campus Dean Jim Smith. "Even though we are not located in Athens, we are still a big part of Ohio University and we want to show our O.U. pride."
Fridays are already dress casual days on campus. Now, students, faculty and staff are just being encouraged to show their O.U. spirit by wearing an Ohio University or Ohio Bobcats shirt.
"Ohio University athletic teams are doing really well right now," said Smith. "The football team has been having a really good year, last year the basketball team made it to the Sweet 16. It's a great time to be a Bobcat and a wonderful time to wear Ohio University gear on campus."
Students can also wear their Lancaster campus athletic team gear.
"We are very proud of our Cougars athletic teams at the regional campus and spirit for those teams is also encouraged," said Smith. "Basketball season is upon us and before we know it, baseball season will be here."
