OWU to Wear Orange and Maroon in Support of Virginia Tech

April 19, 2007

Dear Members Of The OWU Family:

Virginia Tech has invited others across the country to show their support for their families and their school community in this time of tragedy by wearing their school colors"orange and maroon" tomorrow, Friday, April 20.

Please join in and show Ohio Wesleyan's compassion for our fellow university community. (See their information below.)

Virginia Tech family members across the country have united to declare this Friday, April 20th, an "Orange and Maroon effect" day to honor those killed in the tragic events on campus Monday, and to show support for Virginia Tech students, faculty, administrators, staff, alumni, and friends.

"Orange and Maroon Effect" was born several years ago as an invitation to Tech fans to wear orange and maroon to Virginia Tech athletic events. We invite everyone from all over the country to be a part of the Virginia Tech family this Friday, to wear orange and maroon to support the families of those who were lost, and to support the school and community we all love so much.


John M. Delaney, Dean of Students
