Many people know the programs as a whole as Odyssey Sculpture and Events. The name derives from the name of a beautiful piece of sculpture which depicts Greek storyteller Homer’s great legend about Odysseus (Ulysses) as he maneuvers his raft across vast waters on his way home from the Trojan War to Ithaca, a journey that took some 20 years.
The word “Odyssey” means journey – the experience that all people—especially college students here have as they chart their future course for their lives.
