[dropcap]E[/dropcap]very Tuesday night, Ohio University’s Campus Involvement Center offers OHIO Bobcats an opportunity to learn a new skill during its “How-To Series.” This week’s “how-to” was designed with Homecoming in mind and gave Bobcats a chance to bond while creating OHIO keepsakes.

Dozens of Bobcats packed the “How to Make OHIO String Art” event held outside of the Baker University Center Theatre. Using only a board, some carefully placed nails and some green and white string, the students had the option of crafting two works of OHIO-themed art – a Bobcat paw print or the outline of the state of Ohio with a heart marking Athens’ location.

Bobcat Nation kicked off Homecoming Week on Monday, and Tuesday night’s “how-to” event was offered specifically to generate some Bobcat pride in the lead-up to Homecoming Weekend. By the time the event started, participants had already started working on all but two of the crafting boards available.

“This particular ‘how-to’ event is a real popular one that everyone likes to do and kind of already knows how to do, but never thinks about doing on their own time,” said Bridget Gibson, a programmer with the Campus Involvement Center.
