Circle of Friends: Dick Crawford

Dick Crawford has a lifetime of stories. He's served as mayor, befriended Woody Hayes and Jack Nicklaus, and once even attended former President Ronald Reagan's 76th birthday party as a guest of then-Vice President George H.W. Bush. But Dick's late wife, Joan, is the highlight of his stories spanning more than five decades.

Legos, Buckeye Mentors Inspire Future Women in Engineering

It may look like Legos fun and games, but the youngsters in the Women in Engineering (WiE) robotics outreach initiative could be the engineers of the next generation. The initiative allows WiE to team up with local schools and partners to teach fourth- through eighth-grade students about science and technology.

Elf Door Brings Whimsy to Columbus Park

Ohio State industrial design graduate student Abel Hernandez of the College of Arts and Sciences created and constructed a tiny elf door in the base of a Whetstone Park tree in Columbus. He was selected by Keebler and the Columbus Parks and Recreation Department for a Keebler national tiny door campaign promoting the idea that the Keebler elves are real and baking cookies in the trees.
