By Ashland University’s Homecoming in October of 2017, a formerly grassy area near the Jack and Deb Miller Memorial Chapel will be transformed into a quiet and serene oasis on campus. On Friday, May 5, 2017, the Ashland University Women’s Auxiliary “turned the dirt” for a proposed Prayer Garden on the east side of the Miller Chapel.
The Prayer Garden began as a discussion in 2015 between AU’s First Lady Karen Campo and Rev. Jason Barnhart, executive director of Christian Ministry. Barnhart shared his vision to provide a place for prayer, peace and quiet among the busyness of campus life.
