O’Rears take their place on campus

O’Rears take their place on campus

President Randy O’Rear and his family moved into the university’s new president’s home in August. The Board of Trustees decided to build a new president’s home at the beginning of O’Rear’s presidency in June 2009, after determining that more living space was needed for O’Rear’s family, which has more children living at home than the previous two presidents’ families. The former president’s home, The Parker House, was converted into the Musick Alumni Center and Museum. O’Rear and his wife Julie have three children: Ryan (19), Taylor (17), and Reed (15). The family’s two golden retrievers, Sandy and Monty, also have a new home in the backyard—a matching red brick doghouse, complete with its own set of white columns.
