September 13 – Warm nights and dark skies beckon our students outside this month! At the Lower Campus, resident students have been identifying stars and looking at the moon through a telescope situated outside Frost Hall. They have also enjoyed an opening pool party, excursions to downtown Ojai, and fall camping trips.
At the high school, fall sports are underway with cross country, volleyball, flag football and equestrian. Students returned from their fall camping trips to the Channel Islands, Montana Del Oro State Park, Pine Mountain, and Sycamore campground near Malibu.
Also this month, OVS welcomes college representatives from LMU, NYU, Babson, Bard, Chapman, Columbia and more. Read about the value of these college reps in a blog by OVS College Counselor Fred Alvarez.
Finally, don’t miss the annual Mountainfilm event at Lower Campus on Saturday, Sept. 21! This family-friendly event on the OVS lawn benefits the Ojai Valley Land Conservancy. Gates open at 5 p.m. for live music, food trucks, and a Topa Topa Brewing Company beer garden. Inspiring, adventure-packed documentary films from the Telluride Mountainfilm Festival will begin on the giant screen at 7:15 p.m. For more info & tickets, visit www.ovlc.org/mountainfilm19
