An ever changing campus

The current Ogg Hall, located at the intersection of Dayton Street and Park Street, was built in 2007, with features the residents of ""Old Ogg"" lived without: more spacious bedrooms, central air conditioning, classrooms, kitchens on each floor, and updated security systems.  Old Ogg was originally built in 1965, and was torn down in Fall 2007. As with any building on campus that faces demolition, students who had ties to Old Ogg lost a part of their college experience when the building came down.

Who's ready for college?

Parents often say the high school diploma is no longer as valued as it was in the past, and insist that college is the best route to success. However, according to an August 2009 U.S. News and World Report article, 30 percent of university students drop out after their first year, and this alarming percentage could be linked to the lack of academic preparation given to high school students, which is essential to college graduation.
