The Sturges Script is the official blog of the Ohio Wesleyan English Department. It is named after Sturges Hall, the home of the department.
With its grizzled visage and shoe-worn steps, Sturges is among the most beloved buildings on campus. Like its namesake, The Sturges Script aims to be a home for writing by and about OWU English students and alumni, faculty and friends–a place where fellow “Sturgeans” can share stories and celebrate accomplishments. (Grizzled visages optional.)
