Memorial Studio’s Death Greatly Exaggerated

ballroom-dance-feet2Rumors of renovation and removal of the Betty Lynd Thompson Studio of Dance in the Historic Women’s Building at OSU reached the ears of Advocate staff a few weeks ago, and with the fate of the historic building and studio at question we jumped to action. In a caffeine-induced frenzy, we scoured the land for the facts.

After talking to the dean of the College of Public Health and Human Sciences, Dr. Tammy Bray, however, we found that nothing will be changed with respect to the studio. Bray said, ”I do not have any plan that I could share with anyone. There is no story in this rumor. It is a beautiful room, indeed.” Well, that’s quite an encouraging answer to that question. Back to our coffee.
