The History of an OWU Tradition: President’s Ball

Ohio Wesleyan students have been enjoying the annual President’s Ball since 1985, when it was created at the suggestion of sophomore Gay (Johnson) Grossman ’88 in response to a 1985 retreat held by then-university President David Warren to discuss campus-community building.

Johnson planned the formal event and later ended up marrying her date, Steve Grossman ’87.

These days, the gala is planned and executed by the OWU President’s Club and features refreshments, music, dancing, and a cocktail hour for the senior class.

The 2019 President's Ball is Saturday, December 7 at 9pm. More information coming fall 2019.
