Ohio University gears up for the opening of winter quarter

Sept. 3, 2003

Students, welcome back to Athens! While the pace can be a little different, we hope your time is productive and peaceful (and if you're new, we're glad you've decided to make Ohio University your home for the next four years). As the winter quarter begins, you've got a lot to keep track of, so here's an abbreviated calendar with some information about this quarter's deadlines. We've also added some links you can use to help get the year started on the right foot (see below and left).

Next month, on Wednesday, Feb. 18, the university will mark its 200th birthday from noon to 6 p.m. in the rotunda of the new lecture facility, adjacent to the beautifully renovated Grover Center and across the street from both Peden Stadium and the Convocation Center.

Join past presidents, guest speakers, dignitaries and other special guests in commemoration of the University's past, present and future. You'll have the chance to enjoy musical presentations as well as purchase bicentennial- and university-themed merchandise ...

... plus get a slice of a HUGE birthday cake!

Later that night, see the premiere of Mark Phillips' musical composition, "Turning Two Hundred," with dance interpretation by Lisa Ford Moulton, as well as presentation of Founders Citations, taking place at 8 p.m. in the Templeton-Blackburn Alumni Memorial Auditorium.

To learn more about Founders Day, shop in the Bicentennial Marketplace or see others pay tribute to Ohio University, visit the Ohio University Bicentennial Web site today and see why we have so much to celebrate!
