Join us for a very special event on Tuesday, March 3, as we participate in the Student-Alumni Council’s “Dinner with 12 Buckeyes.” Limited seating available — sign up early! 
Created to foster friendships and networking opportunities between students and alumni, this event will take place at the Longaberger Alumni House at 6:00 pm. We need to arrange six alumni and six students for our table. If you are interested in participating, please email us at OSUAlumniFranklinCounty@yahoo.com with your name and phone number. 
There is no cost to attend — the club pays for the meal.  When the list is full, we will take a few extra names as “alternates” in case someone has to back out. We must have at least 6 alumni to represent our group table. This is one of a few great opportunities we have each year to interact with current students, so please join us if you can! 

Book Club & Dinner Event

Its time for the Book Club again,  with a cultural twist!
Our club will be joining with the OSU Asian-Pacific Islander Alumni Society to read and discuss the memoir written by Aarti Shahani called
Here We Are: American Dreams, American Nightmares.”  It is the story of a family who came to the US from India in the 1980’s, dealing with being undocumented, obtaining their green cards, the unforeseen obstacles that propelled them into years of disillusionment and heartbreak, and the strength of a family determined to stay together. 

Purchase the book on your own and complete reading it before Wednesday, March 18.  Then our alumni club will pick up the tab for dinner when we meet with the Asian-Pacific Islander Alumni Society that evening at 6:30 pm at the Hunan Lion restaurant (2038 Crown Plaza Drive, Columbus 43235)

The author has agreed to call in to our dinner event to join the conversation! 

You could also send us an email (include your name and phone number) to: OSUAlumniFranklinCounty@yahoo.com to let us know you wish to participate, so we can send you details about the dinner when the time gets closer.  If you have questions, please contact Mary at 614-323-5379.
