Resources for Alumni Volunteers

Sesquicentennial celebration opportunities for clubs and societies

Since its founding in 1870, The Ohio State University has epitomized the belief that in educating our citizenry, we ensure a better tomorrow for ourselves and as a society. In the academic year 2019-2020, The Ohio State University will mark 150 years with a global celebration for all Buckeyes. Join us as we honor and explore our history, celebrate who we are today and envision and embrace our future.

Alumni groups are encouraged to plan a special event to celebrate the 150th anniversary or use an existing event as a platform for celebrating the sesquicentennial. Participating groups would receive credit for hosting a Category I Special Interest event.

For clubs and societies that opt to host sesquicentennial celebrations, the Association will provide an “event in a box” for each of these experiences to enhance the atmosphere and reinforce the importance of this milestone.
