10:30 a.m., Campus tour
Tour campus via golf carts or University van/bus for an extensive look at ONU’s beautiful 342-acre campus. Many things have changed since your time on campus, but you’ll be glad to know much has remained the same. ONU has an attractive, well-maintained campus with modern facilities that support an exceptional student body. Phi Mu Delta alumni and ONU staff members, Dave Smittle, BSBA ’84, Tom Kier, BSPh ’82, and Scott Wills, BSBA ’87, will be your hosts for this informative tour and look at the ONU of today.

11:45 a.m., Return to McIntosh Center

Noon, Lunch, McIntosh Room 7
Enjoy lunch catered by ONU Dining Services, consisting of pan-seared roast pork tenderloin, smashed potatoes and fresh sautéed green beans. Choose between the market house salad with homemade croutons and balsamic vinaigrette or a stack of fresh tomato slices paired with fresh mozzarella and basil. Dessert includes apple or cherry pie.
(If you have special dietary needs, please include that information with your RSVP)

After lunch, learn about the progress made by the National fraternity and updates on other chapters from Phi Mu Delta Executive Director Thomas A. Murphy, who is flying in from the national headquarters for this event.

Dave Smittle and Tom Kier will share an outline of the planned revitalization project being used to restart Mu Beta chapter during the 2013-14 school year. We'll display architectural plans and explain the scope and vision for a major renovation and reconstruction project planned for the Mu Beta chapter house, as it is readied for re-occupancy in the fall of 2015.

Housing Corporation Board Member Tim Rice, BA '76, JD '79, and Mu Beta Alumni Association President Bob Schlanz, BSBA '79, will join the conversation.

3 p.m., Guided tours of Mu Beta Chapter house with a show-and-tell presentation of the key concepts regarding the planned repurposing of space and details of the remodeling project.

4:30 p.m., Alumni reunion, McIntosh Center Faculty Lounge. We’ll return to McIntosh Center for light refreshments and to relax, visit and catch up with fellow fraternity brothers. The faculty lounge is reserved for the entire evening. No formal dinner plans have been made, but we predict alumni may want to continue visits over dinner at local restaurants. It will be a great time to rekindle old friendships.

Please RSVP by 10 a.m., Monday, Aug. 26, by emailing Dave Smittle or calling 419-230-8147.
At a recent meeting of the Mu Beta Alumni Association, it was decided there would be no charge for us to attend this event. The alumni association wants us to be their guests for this special day! We do, however, still need your RSVP by the date and time above so accurate counts can be provided to catering. 

We look forward to hosting you on campus for this event. We hope to hear from you and see you soon!  If you have any questions, or if we may be of assistance in any way, please be in touch.
