Global Carmen toolkit for clubs and societies

What is Global Carmen?

Carmen Ohio has chimed throughout campus, and in our hearts, since 1918. Help us celebrate our sesquicentennial by joining Buckeyes from around the world in a global performance of our beloved alma mater! For the celebration, we are creating mashup video of alumni, students, faculty/staff and friends singing Carmen Ohio. Record and submit a solo or group video singing our alma mater and we’ll add your voice to the collaborative rendition that will inspire Buckeyes for decades to come.

How to get involved:

Utilize your alumni club/society social media accounts to spread the word about Global Carmen. Encourage your members and social media followers to participate and submit a video of their own.
