Nearly 5,000 Ohio University graduate and
undergraduate students will become alumni during the university's 2013
Commencement this Friday, May 3 and Saturday, May 4, at the Convocation Center
A recent report by the American Association of University Professors
(AAUP) revealed salary information for higher-education institutions
nationwide, allowing for insight into how Ohio University compares at
both the national and state levels.
Despite a brief student protest that shut down their
meeting temporarily, the Ohio University Board
of Trustees voted unanimously Friday to increase undergraduate tuition by 1.6 percent
for the coming academic year.
The event that caps off the Ohio University student
block party season in Athens, Palmer Fest, ended on a relatively positive note
Saturday evening, fulfilling the stated hopes of city officials earlier that
day. (See our Palmer Fest photo gallery.)
