The Moms You Saw During Mom’s Weekend

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Ohio U chapter.
“What happens in Athens, stays in Athens” is a quote that is most relevant to one popular weekend at Ohio University: Moms Weekend. Between April 4 and 6, a multitude of moms found their way to Athens, Ohio to spend time with their favorite bobcats. Some moms came to Athens because they just wanted to relax by having a low-key time with their kids. On the other hand, other moms made the trip to OU because they wanted to have a not-so-low key time (aka wild nights at the bar reliving their college years) with their bobcats. 
Since hundreds of moms stormed the streets of Athens, chances are that people came across various mom personalities. Here’s a brief list of the different types of moms people may have witnessed over Moms Weekend.
