Gambier is Talking About...
The Demolition of Ernst. The former athletic facility was torn down during the summer. The area formerly occupied by Ernst has become green space, allowing for a spectacular view of the Hill from inside the glass-enclosed Kenyon Athletic Center.
Outstanding Citizenship. Retired College Physician Tracy Schermer was named the Gambier Citizen of the Year at the annual Fourth of July Parade. He was honored for almost three decades of service to the community.
Tom Edwards. The College house formerly known as the Student Affairs Center has been renamed Edwards House in honor of Dean of Students Emeritus Tom Edwards and his wife, Gloria. Members of the Student Affairs staff now occupy Gund Commons, which closed as a dining hall when the remodeled Peirce Hall opened. Edwards House is now home to the offices of the registrar and academic advising.
A New Spelling. Local residents petitioned for a correction, after many, many years, of the spelling of Acland Street, named for Sir Thomas Acland but spelled in Gambier, erroneously, as Ackland.
