  1. As an alumna of Ohio University, I would LOVE to be able to attend these events remotely. Please consider hosting them via Google Hangouts or LiveStream so that those of us no longer lucky enough to live in Athens can participate and engage with OU’s mission of cultural awareness and education. 🙂
