founder's day

Join the University Archives for this special Founder's Day presentation.

Todd Jones, former sports reporter at The Columbus Dispatch, and Bill Shkurti, author of The Ohio State University in the Sixties: The Unveiling of the Old Order, will weave the on- and off-the field tale of the 1968 OSU Football Team’s Rose Bowl victory, and the amazing season leading up to it.


The team’s undefeated season is made all the more compelling by the growing tensions and protests that were happening both on campus and throughout the nation.

Light refreshments will be provided.
