Ohio Southern to Observe Earth Hour March 30th
March 19, 2019 : Ohio Southern to Observe Earth Hour March 30th
Ohio University Southern is observing Earth Hour on March 30, 2019. Earth Hour originated in Sydney, Australia and has evolved into the world's largest grassroots movement for the environment.

As part of Southern's participation, the exterior lights to the Cupola of the Riffe Center will be turned off on Saturday the 30th from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm.

"Ohio Southern supports sustainability efforts and encourages our campus community to consider participating in this eco-friendly event at home," said Adam Riehl, Director of Facilities Management for Southern and Manager of Regional Higher Education Capital Improvements Planning.


Earth Hour uses the hashtag #Connect2Earth as a way to illustrate the movement's effectiveness around the world.  For more information, visit online at
