Buckeye Nation Week

Programs and Events

One of the most dynamic and exciting aspects of life outside the classroom at Ohio State is the culture of extraordinary campus events!

Many of these events are associated directly with the Office of Student Life's Student Activities department, in partnership with the Ohio Union Activities Board. Others, like the Student Activity Fee-funded Signature Events and programs planned by registered student organizations, are planned by students and staff from all over campus.
