Photo Friday: Day With The Dean
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to spend a day with the Dean of Students, Ryan Lombardi? It may not be what you think. On February 2, Dean Lombardi starts off his days with a speech at the Ohio Up Close Program at the Memorial Auditorium. He talked to future Ohio University Bobcats about why they will want to attend here. Also, why they will want to call OU home.

Dean Lombardi, like every other student on campus, is a big fan of Twitter. He says that it is very important to stay connected to the students and Twitter is one way to do so. Dean Lombardi has over 4,000 followers that look forward to his tweets each day. He gave out two free tickets to a event on campus through Twitter on Friday, February 2, 2012.
If you think being the Dean of Students is all serious, it’s not. There are some fun times that happen in the Office of Student Affairs. Having a little cookie break, Ryan Lombardi takes a few mintues to chat and have a good time with a few of the other people in his office.
The Dean of Students has hours of meetings each day to make this campus enjoyable. To end his meetings for the day, Dean Lombardi goes to the Crewson House on campus for a Bias Reporting System meeting. He sits for over two hours to talk about this subject. Being the Dean of Students takes a lot of energy and enthusiasm. Ryan Lombardi was a excellent example and a great Dean of Students here at Ohio University. I am sure we are all confident he will make a perfect Vice President of Student Affairs next school year.
