What better way to celebrate Founders Day – the day that commemorates the first day of classes at OSU – than with famous OSU personalities from its nearly 150-year history?

On Tuesday, September 17, Ohio Staters, Inc. and University Archives will host a reception in the University Museum on the first floor of University Hall, where attendees can have their picture taken with such OSU luminaries as Brutus Buckeye, Woody Hayes, Jesse Owens, Maudine the cow, and OSU President William Oxley Thompson.

Join us from 3-5 p.m. in the University Museum where you’ll learn why we love these Buckeyes so much. Light refreshments will be served.

For information, contact Kevlin Haire at haire.14@osu.edu
