'Muskie Night at the Zoo' brings together alumni, incoming first-year students

Zoo GroupNearly 400 Muskingum University first-year students, alumni, faculty, and staff members gathered at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium for “Muskie Night at the Zoo,” on July 19. The event was organized by the Muskingum University Alumni Relations and Admission offices.

As part of the event, attendees received free admission after 5:00 p.m., and were invited to tour the various exhibits at the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium with family and friends. Muskies were also given the opportunity to connect at a picnic dinner, consisting of an introduction by Muskingum University President Susan S. Hasseler and a video welcome by Columbus Zoo and Aquarium Director Emeritus and Muskingum alumnus Jack Hanna.
