Points of Pride

OHIO volunteers empower Ugandan youth
Volunteer efforts on the Ohio University campus have enabled the education of more than 2,000 disadvantaged Ugandan youth through the Empower Campaign, a nonprofit organization that raises money by selling hand-crafted beaded jewelry at Baker University Center. Last year, the growing student organization raised more than $50,000 in campaign donations, under the leadership of Andria Sherrow, assistant director of Ohio University's Institute for the African Child.

OHIO swimmers earn academic recognition
Five members of the Ohio University swimming & diving team were recently honored as Collegiate Swim Coaches Association of America Scholar All-Americans. Rising senior Chelsey Bower received first-team recognition, while rising junior Rachel Heim, departing senior Ashley Marion, rising junior Amanda Traylor and departing senior Carine Vieira de Souza earned honorable mention status.

Sociologist paints new portrait of gun collectors
While some sociologists argue that guns appeal to many collectors for their masculine symbolism, “no one has really explored that,” says Ohio University researcher Jimmy Taylor. Taylor, a sociologist who specializes in masculinity studies, started investigating the world of gun collectors. In his new book, “American Gun Culture: Collectors, Shows, and the Story of the Gun,” he discovers that gun owners have a much more complex relationship with their weapons than popular culture portrays.

Students gain experience in global business
Now in its eighth summer, the College of Business Global Competitiveness Program has brought 27 MBA students and 158 GCP undergraduate students to its nine locations throughout the globe. Business majors Andrew Rubinstein and Bryan Rothenberg, collaborated with students at the Huazhong University of Science and Technology to improve a performance evaluation system for a business incubator in China.

WOUB participating in online PBS Digital Learning Library
Ohio University’s WOUB is one of 12 initial Public Broadcasting Service stations participating in the PBS Digital Learning Library.

The online library, expected to open open in late fall or early winter, will consist of video, audio, images, games and interactive simulations for preK-12 classrooms, but it also will be free to the public.
