Third Annual Dean's Winterfest

On Friday, January 11, students were welcomed back to the Hafter Student Center which was transformed into a winter wonderland representing this year's theme of fire and ice. There were hand-made wooden trees donned with ornaments, a Christmas tree filled with sentiments for the New Year, and a runway covered with snow, fire, and ice.

"When the students came to me with this year's theme - I absolutely loved it," said James Caldwell, OD, EdM, dean of Student Affairs. "It really is a student run event, and they do a great job at it."

I graduated from Ohio University and entered PCO in 1964. Over the next four years I was privileged to work part time with Dr. Harry Kaplan, International Contact Lens Fitter and Professor at PCO. In 1966, while working in Dr. Kaplan's office, I met my wonderful wife.
