Hey Bobcats! It's already Week 10, but even though the semester is flying by there are still plenty of events to participate in on campus - including Dads Weekend, which is Nov. 3-5. This special weekend is the perfect opportunity for fathers, father figures and families to experience Ohio University while spending time with their students, and there are tons of activities planned!

But we've got a lot of week to get through before we reach Dads Weekend and here are a few highlights from the CUE:

Wealth and Poverty Week: Ted Strickland on Restoring the American Dream (Monday, Oct. 30, 3 to 4 p.m., Friends of the Libraries Room, Alden Library 319): Former Ohio Governor Ted Strickland will discuss discussing “Restoring the American Dream and Securing a Stable American Democratic." His lecture is part of the College of Arts and Sciences' Wealth and Poverty Week on Urban Challenges.

This is a great opportunity to meet with faculty, staff and students involved in the program and learn to Go Global in Japan!
