What a better way to kick off Spring than to enjoy some Buckeye Football!!  The Scarlet vs. Gray spring football game will be on Saturday, April 11 this year. We’ll order a block of tickets, and we’ll host our traditional tailgate party.

Event CANCELLED by the University.

Game time is currently set for 12 Noon. You can order your tickets now!  For only$12 per person, this includes your game ticket AND all the food and beverages at the tailgate (rain or shine – we are “covered”), so bring the whole family!  There will be cheerleaders, the Best Damn Band in the Land, and of course Coach Day will lead the team in putting on a “Show in the ‘Shoe”!  After the departure of several seniors, who will be the new breakout stars?


Join us for a new community service event as we volunteer at Huckleberry House, a shelter for young people and families who are escaping dealing with a variety of issues in their home life.  We could be serving a meal, sorting donations, cleaning, painting or fixing things around the house.

Our date is Saturday, July 18, from 10 am to 12 Noon.  Please save this date to join us in helping these young people.  If you are able to volunteer for this event, please RSVP to Karyn Johnson ( or 614-822-1430) with your name, phone number, and email address. Thank you for supporting our community service efforts! 


Join us for our semi-annual Wine-Tasting dinner at the Wine Bistro on Lane Avenue,  Wednesday, April 15, at 6:30 pm. There is limited seating available at this Upper Arlington location, so get your reservation in early!  It’s a great way to ring in spring with Buckeye friends. 
Parking is available around the Wine Bistro, behind the building, on side streets, and across the street in the Lane Ave. Shopping Center. Along with the various wine samples, the chef will provide an excellent meal.  Arrive hungry!


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 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! 


The Franklin County OSU Alumni Club will have a block of tickets to the Lady Buckeyes’ final weekend home game of the season, vs. Wisconsin, Sunday, February 9, at 1:00 pm. We will host our usual “Tailgate” party in the Huntington Club (2nd level of the Schottenstein Center). 


Join us for a unique evening to learn about some of the fascinating history of our city!  On Wednesday, January 22, at 6 pm, at the Alumni House, we will host our OSU Sesquicentennial Dinner, with a special presentation called “Columbus Uncovered!”This event will tie-in to the university’s year-long Sesquicentennial celebration (150th birthday of Ohio State).  The history of Columbus and the history of the university are certainly intertwined. 
Learn about a long-lost, world-class amusement park, huge replicas of the world’s biggest wonders, a 1903 stage play with eight galloping horses, the 19th century pharmacist who loved to sunbathe nude atop his castle, the early visit of an airship that led to a riot.  And many curiosities are still with us today – a neighborhood with 50 Frank Lloyd Wright-style homes, a company that makes burglar-proof burial vaults, and more of the most-unusual chapters in our city’s history.


In February we begin the most important task that we accomplish each year: the awarding of an OSU scholarship to a deserving Franklin County high school senior. The first step of that process is reading the applications. You will be truly impressed by the quality of the candidates we receive for our scholarship!

We need volunteers to read and score the applications. This process will begin around February 1 and will be completed within two weeks.  Interviews will be Saturday, February 22. If you want to assist with reading applications or on interview day, please contact Brad Farmer, or 614-371-5523 for details.


Join us for a new Community Service project this year as we volunteer at Unverferth House, a temporary home away from home for families and patients of the OSU Medical Center. This facility started in memory of Don
Unverferth, an OSU football player who later became a surgeon and served our country as a military physician.

We need about 10 volunteers to prepare lunch for the patients and their families, and do other chores around the facility on Saturday January 11, from 10 am to 1 pm. If you are able to volunteer for this event, please RSVP to Karyn Johnson ( or 614-822-1430) with your name, phone number, and email address. Thank you for supporting our community service efforts!
