If you miss Athens as much as the next Bobcat, you probably made sure to keep up on everything going on at Ohio University as well as your favorite places in town. From President Nellis’ first day to a rainbow horse, a lot has occurred throughout the summer and has been shared on Twitter. Here’s a recap of the best tweets of the summer from Athens.
President Duane Nellis’ first day as OU’s new president was June 12. Events of his day were shared on Twitter via @OHIOPrezOffice. The president’s twitter account shared a video recap at the end of Nellis’ busy first day including him getting his ID photo, meeting future Bobcats at orientation, and touring the campus.
OU’s organizations and staff members, such as Dean of Students Jenny Hall-Jones, also shared tweets welcoming the new president.
The Ohio University Police Department shared a photo of Chloe and K9 Brody. For her birthday, Chloe asked for items to make care packages for the K9s instead of presents.
Hall-Jones also shared tweets from incoming freshman and their parents about their excitement for when they become a Bobcat with #BSOOHIO. Current Bobcats remembered their orientation and her excitement while leading the “OU, oh yeah” chant and warning students never to wear Miami gear on campus.
A tweet by @csattrell featured his own version of the Hollywood star meme featuring OU’s Student Body President Landen Lama.
Other members of the Student Senate shared their summer adventures with #OHIOSenateSummer. The tweets included photos of the senate members on all their summer adventures.
Athens Pride Fest occurred on June 9 to 11 with events going on around campus including a Pride Rally, a concert, and a drag show. However, what people were not planning on seeing was a rainbow horse walking through College Green for the festivities.
Lastly, in case you missed the crazy antics of Court Street at night, Red Brick Tavern tweeted about a customer who had an interesting question for the workers.
