Visit your old residence hall during Homecoming 2015

Take a walk down memory lane and tour your old residence hall at 6 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 9 during this year’s Homecoming Week 2015.

“This is the second year we have provided alumni the chance to visit their dorms, relive those memories and share them with their families,” said Dawn Werry, director of external relations for the Ohio University Alumni Association. “It was very well attended last year so we wanted to make the unique event available once again.”

All residence halls will be available for viewing, including OHIO’s newest residential housing complex, which celebrated its grand opening on Aug. 29.

The pre-requested dorms will be open and staffed, ready for registered individuals to tour the halls and reminisce. While a room may be opened for viewing it is not guaranteed that specific rooms can be opened, as students are currently occupying them for the school year.

“This is a great addition to Homecoming because people love to relive their good old days. This event allows our alumni to tell stories to their children and families while showing them one of the places where those wonderful memories took place,” Werry said.

In order to ensure that the requested residential halls are open for tours, registration is required for all attendees planning to participate in the event.
