Back in Town

The Bishops are back for the 2018-2019 academic year!

And it promises to be a great semester and year, with the September opening of the new Delaware Entrepreneurial Center at Ohio Wesleyan University; the January opening of the new Butler A. Jones House of Black Culture; the addition of two new varsity sports, women’s rowing and men’s wresting; and the return of the OWU Marching Band.

The band helped to kick-off the year on a high note, leading the Class of 2022 and new transfer students on their ceremonial First Lap around campus after Convocation.

We’re glad everyone’s back. Forward march!
