What has OSI been up to?

What a great first half of the semester it has been for Ohio Staters, Inc.!  So far we have added 3 new members (welcome Ellen, John and Maddie), had a great intramural soccer season, celebrated Founders’ Day, and began testing lights for our annual event Light Up the Lake…

Thank you to Archives for all of their help with Founders’ Day 2015 & Lee McClory for the awesome pictures!

Thank you alumni!

We were thrilled to have Stater Alumni present at our weekly luncheon this past Thursday! The organization would not be as successful as it is without such great past Staters who stay in contact and help with projects whenever they can. Alumni listened to graduating senior speeches and handed out senior awards. All of us were so grateful for those who were able to attend, once a Stater always a Stater!

Pictured below are alumni (Mark Badertscher, Katie Krajny, Erin Samuels) and seniors (Harrison Sciulli, Brianna Horn, Cody Salyi, Alex Biddle, Kristin Bruggeman).

Sibs & Kids Weekend

Ohio Staters, Inc. participated in the Sibs & Kids Weekend events this past Saturday. Staters provided the materials for participants to make their own Buckeye necklace. We also had a guessing game where participants guessed how many Buckeyes they thought were in the jar. Thank you to all volunteers who helped and Buckeyes (past, present and future) who came to the event! Co-Chairs Arielle Cronig and Kristen Bruggeman did a fantastic job.
