Points of Pride

Daley-Cutler Scholar volunteers in Macedonia
Terrence Berry is a Daley-Cutler Scholar from Ashbury Park, N.J. and an OHIO student who recently took advantage of an opportunity that changed his life. While volunteering in Macedonia, he learned what it was like to be out of his element and how to adapt to the shock of living in a new environment with a totally different culture.

Another record-breaking year for enrollment
Not only is enrollment up again this year for Ohio University, but this year's incoming freshman class is breaking other records as well. The class of 2014 is entering with increased SAT, ACT and high school GPA scores. These achievements are seen as a sign of faculty's success in continuing to recruit the best and brightest for OHIO.

Engineering students design water pump in Ghana
A senior design project gave four OHIO students the chance to give the village of Maase-Offinso access to spring water for usage and to sell to neighboring villages. Team Pump It Up designed a solar-powered water pumping system, which they installed in July with the help of their advisor Greg Kremer, associate professor of mechanical engineering, over the course of three weeks in Ghana.

OHIO vs. OSU Weekend Events Sept. 16-18
The Central Ohio Chapter Network's alumni events themed around the OHIO vs. Ohio State University football game were a huge success! Beginning with Thursday night's OHIO vs. OSU Alumni Challenge, Central Ohio alumni had the highest attendance and also brought in the most food for Mid-Ohio Food Bank, with 13 boxes to OSU's six. Friday's Pregame and Prep Rally sponsored by Liberty Mutual and Lodge Bar also saw success, with 1,100 Bobcats in attendance and about $7,500 raised in support of the Central Ohio Endowed Scholarship. Saturday's Bobcat Bash had 340 alumni in attendance. A special "thank you" to the Central Ohio Chapter Network for their hard work in bringing alumni together for these occasions. To see more photos from the weekend, visit ohioalumni.org/ohio-vs-ohio-state-weekend.

Help support OHIO students with chapter and society scholarships
Let’s face it -- it's a tough time to be a student. College costs keep increasing while the private (and public for that matter) loan market is shrinking. For a lot of students, it's not a question of where they go but rather if they can go.

But as you know, Bobcats are great people, and many of our chapters have taken a stand because they believe this is an important issue.

Take for example the Central Ohio Chapter -- a group of dedicated alumni so passionate they've set at goal of raising $100,000 to support students from their area. In the few short years since they started their scholarship, they've been able to help 19 students and now proudly claim 15 alumni as their own.

If you have a few seconds, check out our chapter and society scholarships and see if there's one from your geographic region, student activity or major that piques your interest. And of course, we'd greatly appreciate it if you’d consider making a gift by clicking here today.

Thanks, and GO BOBCATS!
