My Alma Mater Ohio Wesleyan

The Lighting of Selby Field was held just this past weekend. It was the first time since 1925 that the football field at Ohio Wesleyan had lights. This is a new era for the Bishop Athletics, and as an Alumni I am proud of my University.

Wanted to share with you a recent press release from my alma mater.
