The Hall of Fame selection committee is composed of a cross-section of representatives from the athletics department, University Advancement, and alumni, and is responsible for screening and selecting inductees. The University Advancement division reviews/accepts the recommendations and officially notifies the inductees of their selection into the Hall of Fame.
Hall of Fame Selection Criteria
- The nominee must be a graduate of OWU.
- The nominee’s preferred class must have graduated from OWU at least 10 years prior to the current academic year.
