#RioTBT What with summer school, it just seems appropriate to give you a homework assignment. Here is the cover of the alumni magazine for the 125th anniversary of the school. How many of the individuals and buildings can you identify? For extra credit, what do you know about the signature in the top right-hand corner?

#thowbackthursday to the Summer of '69: For many years, warm weather would cause Rio students to flock to Raccoon Creek for some "fun in the sun." A student's diary from the summer of 1916 tells of her desire to take swimming lessons from the cute PE instructor. The lessons were offered at the creek. The waters under the bridge at Cora Mill, south of Rio Grande, were popular for swimming in the late 1960s and '70s. Large crowds would gather for swimming, fun, and other festivities. It was rumored that certain Rio students would skip class to take a plunge!

The Honorable Mayor Stephen Gilmore (Rio Graduate 1965) recently helped usher in a gift to the City of Ashland, KY. The beautiful statues sculpted by a famous, renowned, sculpture - Gines Serrano Pagan. A book is being written about the process and Mayor Gilmore was asked to write the foreword.

"The City of Ashland is now the home of three of the largest sculptures in one setting across America and the world. Two are mythical Gods: Vulcan - representing metallurgy and the steel industry that built our town all the laborers past and present, and Venus - representing the beauty of our area, while holding an ash tree with roots hanging as symbol of our love and care of the environment. The third statue - Genesis - the beginning, due to Gines' evidence of our strong faith based community as well as his own."

#TBT From the Archives: Haning Hall was completed in 1939. It was constructed primarily by student labor.
It occupied the site across from the Ohio Valley Bank and next to the President's House. It was originally called "Science Hall," but in 1947 the name was changed to Haning Hall, in honor of Ira Z. Haning, the Free Will Baptist minister that suggested the idea of a college to the Atwoods. It was torn down in 1984, and the only mention of it that exists is a parking lot called "the Haning Hall" lot.

Our much anticipated event in Cleveland on June 20th has been cancelled. We will also be cancelling the June 26th event in Cincinnati - both due to the restrictions the state still has on group gatherings as a result of Covid-19.

Our Columbus Chapter event has been rescheduled for September 25th.

I plan to reschedule Cleveland and Cincinnati but not sure of a date at this time for those.

Stay tuned for more info on Chapter Events!

Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday

FROM THE ARCHIVES: The face of campus changed dramatically in the decade of 1962-1972. Moulton Hall was completed in 1962, and was followed in rapid succession by a new cafeteria ( now Florence Evans Hall ) in 1966, Davis Library in 1966, Holzer Hall in 1966, Boyd Hall in 1970, and Lyne Center in 1970. The school finally achieved full North Central accreditation in 1969. Alphus Christensen was the president during this time. On another note, Ray Matura, Earl Thomas, and Jake Bapst also appeared in that time.

University of Rio Grande Women's Basketball

The University of Rio Grande Women’s Basketball program is 11-4 in the last 7 years vs NCAA D-II schools.

During that time the Women’s Basketball team had an overall record of 146-75.

Also during that time the team traveled and played in basketball tournaments in Florida, Tennessee, Hawaii and Puerto Rico.

The University of Rio Grande Women's Basketball Team is known for two stat lines every year. That is scoring and rebounding. We are usually in the Top 15 in Points Per Game (in the Top 5 3 of the last 7 years) and usually in the Top 5 in Total Rebounds (5 of the last 7 years)

We are currently recruiting the 2021 and 2022 classes. Who will be the next player to commit to our program and University ?

The 21st Annual Archon Golf Classic scramble will be held Saturday August 3rd at West Chester Golf Course. 6300 Bent Grass Blvd Canal Winchester, Ohio 43110. http://www.westchestergolfcourse.com/index.htm This year, we are bringing our longest running fund raising event to the Columbus area in order to provide a central location that gives all Alumni an opportunity to gather and tee up for another enjoyable and memorable day of golf…depending how you play that is! Let’s sign up with your teams NOW! Teams can be made up of frat brothers, friends, co-workers or family members. The cost is $75.00/pp includes golf, cart, breakfast, lunch, and dinner. (What a deal. You can’t stay home for that much!) Hope you noticed we have also changed the month in which we have our Classic. This year we hope it will ensure us of more golf friendly weather. Also, Rio Folks if you work for a company or own your business and would like to donate door prizes, raffle items, ex. (gift cards, tees, golf balls, hats etc.) or be a corporate hole sponsor this is a good way to advertise. We will erect signs (your own sign) during event, send personalized “thank you” notes with the Archon 501-3c non-profit organization tax ID as a receipt. Everyone likes prizes, and you will have plenty of opportunities to win with 50/50 raffles, prizes for longest drive, closest to the pin, longest putt, etc. Don’t forget the ARCHON CLASSIC golf tournament “Founders Cup”. The winning teams’ names will be added to this elite trophy!! Our goal this year is to have at least 40 players (10 teams). This many participates makes the event more challenging and rewarding!! Many Rio Folks have at some point attended the ARCHON CLASSIC. Many of you have helped in one way or another to grow and continue this event, its purpose and the spirit Archons have always held for our order and the university from which we were founded. We would like to see each one make it to this great day of golf, and comradely! Non Golfers are welcome also .We will have activities for all cart riders .You can reserve your spot on Archonalumni.org.The proceeds of this fundraiser goes to the Archon scholarship fund which is open to all students of the University of Rio Grande
