Ohio University's 29 Park Place

Homecoming week is looking a bit different for Cutler Scholars this year - not just because its virtual. Typically during Homecoming week we invite our alumni back to Trisolini, but we’ve moved into a new home: the Academic Engagement Center at 29 Park Place.

The first floor has plenty of space to work and hang out, host events, and a seminar room. On the second floor, there are rooms to hold meetings and CQ, as well as honors advising offices. The third floor is the home of our scholars' lounge. Enjoy a virtual tour of our new home!

A preview of Ohio University's newly renovated 29 Park Place.

Once a Bobcat, always a Bobcat. Let’s fight to curb student food insecurity among our campus, and create a better community for all Bobcats.

We are so very proud of Grasselli Brown Cutler Scholar Zach Reizes '19. Bravo, Zach!

When Zach Reizes arrived at Ohio University in the fall of 2015, he immersed himself not only in the Athens Campus and community, but in the greater Southeast Ohio region.

In getting to know the region’s people, passions and problems, this Northeast Ohio native has become a champion for Southeast Ohio, most recently spearheading a fundraising campaign to help those impacted by COVID-19 response measures. “I have a lot of close friends who are business owners in Southeastern Ohio, and it became so obvious so quickly that this crisis was going to be devastating to our local economy,” Reizes said. “There are a unique number of factors that make Athens County businesses even more vulnerable.”

Read about how Reizes and other members of the Ohio University family stepped up to support the local community in a time of unprecedented need.

Moss Nash '21 (W.R. & A.L Konneker) set up a table full of treats––with a twist! Cleverly titled "Wrong Eats," Nash's piece helps us think differently about ordinary practices. Which treat would you go for?

Be on the lookout, all this warm weather brings the artists outside. This week, artist Moss Nash set up a picnic table outside the Sculpture Building. At first glance, this was simply an invitation to a free lunch. Upon further investigation, students realized this was a picnic with instructions on how to eat all the food. For example, if someone wanted to eat a banana, they had to eat it horizontally like an ear of corn opposed to vertically. Nash made this clever piece, titled “Wrong Eats”, for the class Actions and Environments. Nash is currently an undergraduate and plans to apply to both the Printmaking and Sculpture BFA programs.

Look at our amazing seniors! This weekend's excursion to the Hocking Hills proved to be reinvigorating, but also reminded us the fun in spending time with one another. It was also a pleasure to interact with some Cutler graduates that joined us for our alumni panel.
