NEW CONCORD — Former Northmont High School football standout Bryant Dickerson of Englewood, Ohio, has decided to continue his athletic and academic careers at Muskingum University Muskie Head Coach Al Logan announced. Dickerson will be a member of Muskingum’s Class of 2019 that will start school in August 2015.

Muskingum opens the 2015 season at home against Waynesburg on Saturday, September 5 at 1 p.m.

Long considered one of the nation’s strongest regional academic institutions, Muskingum’s enthusiasm for the future has never been stronger. Muskingum has experienced a period of intensive strategic planning and resource development. This endeavor has resulted in sound financial growth, effective resource investment, and unprecedented campus construction – and has been noted in BusinessWeek magazine, The Chronicle of Higher Education, and featured on National Public Radio. The effects of such planning are tangible across campus. Over the past 12 years, the University’s enrollment has expanded from 1,800 to more than 3,000 undergraduate and graduate students.

Under the leadership of President Dr. Anne C. Steele, Muskingum has entered a period of intensive growth and renewal in facilities. These include three new, state-of-the-art campus land- marks: Philip and Betsey Caldwell Hall, the 32,000 square-foot home of speech, theatre, electronic journalism and communications programs, dedicated in 2004; the Walter K. Chess Center, the 22,000 square-foot home of student activities, fitness, and recreation, dedicated in 2008; and Otto and Fran Walter Hall, the 28,000 square-foot home for music, world languages and the PLUS Center, dedicated in 2011.

Completed “campus of the future” facilities projects also include the Louis Palmer Gallery, the Ruth and John Neptune Art Center and multi-million dollar renovations and restorations to Muskingum’s athletic complex and historic academic buildings.

Offering 59 undergraduate and interdisciplinary majors, including Nursing, Engineering Science and Digital Media Design and eight pre-professional programs, three master’s degree programs, and the Muskingum Adult Program, the university serves the east central Ohio community and beyond.

Muskingum’s mission is to develop – intellectually, spiritually, socially and physically – whole persons, by fostering critical thinking, position action, ethical sensitivity and spiritual growth. Muskingum meets students where they are, helping each to discover his or her own potential. Small class sizes and the personal attention of an exceptional and dedicated faculty create an atmosphere of success and achievement.
