What's in a name? Ask the Bobcat Depot...

Bobcat Essentials & Technology Depot to join forces as the Bobcat Depot

Bobcat Essentials and the Technology Depot are coming together, figuratively as well as literally.

The two Baker University Center retail operations will be merging into a single store this summer. As it turns out, their names also will merge, with the new operation being called the Bobcat Depot.

OIT and Auxiliaries sponsored a contest to select the new name, with the winning participant receiving a 16 GB iPad Mini. According to OIT customer resources manager Kim McClain, the contest received 186 submissions. University Communications & Marketing ultimately chose the winning entry.

Thirteen participants suggested "Bobcat Depot," so the contest organizers conducted a random drawing to decide which of the winning submissions would receive the grand prize. OHIO student Hayley Heminger was awarded the iPad Mini. The other 12 runners up will receive an OHIO T-shirt.
