My daily post theme for 2017 is on Colleges and Universities.

The plan for starting my blog back in 2014 was at the urging of fellow coaching colleagues to share posts on leadership and/or motivation. Somehow that idea got derailed and  turned into daily posts on one theme for an entire year.

In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and for 2017 I will focus on “Colleges and Universities”.

I have been associated with colleges since I was 18 and I love them. I have coached/worked at four different universities and in my professional and personal travels visited 100’s more. Each college has something in its history that I want to share that to me make it unique or personal.

Name of University: Ohio University

Location: Athens OH

I have a number of good friends that either worked or attended Ohio University. Ohio University is the ninth oldest public university located in Athens, Ohio. Athens is a small town located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains of Southeast Ohio.

I have heard my friends brag on the success of OU athletic teams and lament that the institution often shows up on list of best party schools (see below). They don’t deny that there is a social aspect to OU but it far more than just a party school. They each have tremendous Bobcat Pride.

What my friends have never told me is the reputation the campus has related to ghosts or the paranormal. Two examples that pop up over and over again in internet searches include the Ridges, formerly known as Athens Lunatic Asylum (below).



The second haunted reference is Wilson Hall at Ohio University. A student was killed in room 428 at Ohio University in the 1970s. Students reported experiencing paranormal activity. Today the Hall is not used.

I found lots of rumors or theories about Wilson Hall including that it is located in the center of a pentagram formed by five cemeteries. A pentagram is a religious symbol which is considered either a safe place or a place of evil. Sitting in the center is Wilson Hall shown below.
