Oh Come Let’s Ring Ohio’s Praise

On February 11th, 2015 Ohio State celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Orton Bells. The project, Oh Come, Let’s Ring Ohio’s Praise, created an impromptu singing of Carmen Ohio on the Oval at 12:45pm and also put on an event at Orton Hall itself. During this event two former “Chimers” were recognized for their contribution to the tradition of the Orton bells. There was also a speech by The Ohio State University President, Dr. Michael Drake, and the Chimes Class Honorary President. The ceremony was followed by two hours worth of tours of the bell tower.
