Saturday, we’ll gather in memory of former Dean Joe Berman, share a picnic lunch, reminisce, and tour our favorite OU and Athens spaces and places. Saturday night, we’ll get a little fancy for a gala and dinner at the historic Zenner House. Sunday, we’ll enjoy breakfast to close a wonderful weekend together.
