FULL STEAM AHEAD
The Joseph and Judith Conda STEAM Education Center at University of Findlay’s Mazza Museum was officially opened on September 10 after breaking ground roughly a year and a half earlier. The addition promises to be a dynamic, student-centered partnership where UF students in the sciences, education, art, and more can come together with the college students of tomorrow in a creative and exciting hub for all things Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics/Medicine.
TAKE A LOAD OFF
The completion of a second hammock park, outside of Deming Hall, created yet another relaxation station for students to chill, study, eat, sleep, converse, or all of the above!
Campus police were recognized by the Lexipol Connect program, the nation’s leading content, policy and training platform for public safety agencies, for achieving the Gold level of policy implementation and review for consistently and effectively disseminating policies to officers, issuing timely policy updates as laws change, and ensuring officers are trained on policies.
RECYCLING RAMP UP
In order to both make the recycling process more efficient and convenient as well as encourage the campus community to change their behavior toward waste reduction efforts, major improvements are being made to UF’s recycling program with the help of an Ohio EPA Grant.
SERVICE WITH A SMILE
For the 19th consecutive year, new freshmen helped people and non-profit organizations in the Findlay community as part of the annual tradition of Student Orientation Service Projects. Students landscaped, painted, and cleaned at schools, churches, and other organizations in the area.
Fifty high school students attended UF’s week-long summer theology camp, The Well, where they spent the week participating in daily worship, biblical study, breakout sessions, and local service opportunities. It was the second time The Well has been at its maximum capacity of participants since the camp began six years ago.
From new campus signage to help visitors find their way, to updating student recreation areas like the sand volleyball pits and the basketball courts, UF’s Student Government Association (SGA) and its Campus Improvement Committee has been hard at work bringing projects across campus to life.
THE FUTURE’S SO BRIGHT
The College of Business is offering assistance to entrepreneurs through a new multi-faceted program, the Business Resource for Innovation, Teamwork, and Entrepreneurship (BRITE) Center, which will offer guidance in starting a new business or exploring a new profession and pair people with mentors to get real-world advice.
PHARM CAMP LIFE
The College of Pharmacy hosted two pharmacy summer camps where students got the chance to learn more about medicinal chemistry, pharmacology, hospital pharmacy, compounding, and more, so that they might leave camp with a better understanding of the pharmacy profession and the program.
A GIFT FOR MUSIC
A scholarship was created from a significant legacy gift made through the generosity of the late Rebecca Sue “Becky” Craig of Kenton, Ohio, who passed away in 2020 at the age of 83. Though not a UF graduate, Craig was a frequent attendee and enthusiastic supporter of UF’s Civic Band concerts where her brother once played the oboe.
