Local OSU Alumni Club visits main campus in Columbus


Local Ohio State University alumni George and Carolyn Shoemaker, retired educators from the Washington C.H. City Schools, regale Beth Uniacke (left) with their story of having put a spring/summer walk around the Oval onto their personal bucket lists several years ago, so they were thrilled by Greene County’s invitation to the Fayette County alumni group. Uniacke, representing the Ohio State University Alumni Association (under the official title of Regional Engagement Officer, Southern Ohio), welcomed the 40-plus participants in the combined group to a private lunch at the elegant Faculty Club.


Recently a dozen members of the OSU Alumni Club of Fayette County traveled to the main campus in Columbus for a comprehensive full-day outing organized by the Greene County club. The morning featured an informative walking tour past the historic buildings on the Oval, followed by a visit to the Historic Costume & Textiles Collection in Campbell Hall. The afternoon was devoted to behind-the-scenes tours of recently-renovated Sullivant Hall, including the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum, the Department of Dance, and the Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design. Pat Gall had announced at the early-April annual meeting that this type of involvement has helped the local club achieve the highest status recognized by the Ohio State University Alumni Association. The seven Fayette Countians visible in this photo taken during the Oval walk are (from left) Pat Parsons, Roger Parsons, Carolyn Shoemaker, George Shoemaker, Marlene Rankin, Debbie Roby and Dr. Norma Kirby.
