Recurring Projects

Ohio Staters, Inc. sponsors many projects that are re-scoped and are able to occur over and over again. These projects include:

  • Light Up North Area/Light Up The Lake
    • This project gives the entirety of the Ohio State community the opportunity to come together in a traditional holiday celebration around Mirror Lake every winter. Staters organizes the event and commits to hanging lights to be hung throughout the dark wintry season.
  • Founders Day
    • Founders Day is a yearly celebration of Ohio State history. Each year, Staters works alongside University Archives to commemorate a different component of OSU history, planning a single-day event on campus that engages students in meaningful and enjoyable ways to learn more about the buckeye legacy.
  • Sibs and Kids Weekend
    • Sibs and Kids Weekend is a project in which Ohio Staters creates a program to engage siblings and families visiting campus with some element of campus – whether it be dipping chocolate buckeyes, coloring pictures of Brutus, running through a trivia-laden maze, or creating Buckeye necklaces, there is fun for all to be had!
  •  How Firm Thy Safety
    • This project gives students, staff, and faculty the opportunity to let the Department of Public Safety know that we appreciate all of their hard work and service in protecting the campus community.

In addition to the specific projects, Ohio Staters, Inc. sponsors many First Year Success Series and STEP Professional Development Co-Circulars as well as sponsors a number of scholarship opportunities for Ohio State students.
