Ohio State and the wide city of Columbus are never short of events, but searching through them all is a chore. We’ve compiled a list of the most worthwhile places you need to be coming up this month, hand-picked by the editor. Some of these favorites are on-campus, so if you know, you know, but sometimes you just need a break from college life, and you just gotta go off campus. We hear both needs, Buckeyes.
1.16 | Spring Student Involvement Fair
IYKYK 😏 // Ohio Union
As a passionate former involvedTM student, I think the involvement fairs are the most opportunistic times of the year. Though it’s smaller than the autumn fair, if you just transferred to Ohio State or still feel like your OSU experience is missing something, there’s no harm in checking out the mini-Buckeye families you could be missing out on.
1.16 | OUABe Fit – Dance
IYKYK 😏 // Ohio Union Dance Room 1
If you’re not sure how to start off that “get fit” new year’s resolution, start with something fun like dancing. Don’t even pressure yourself to trek all the way to the RPAC, just check out OUAB’s Union- housed dance class that mixes high- energy choreography with kickboxing and barre.
1.17 | Drunk Powerpoint Night
IYKYK 😏 // Kafe Kerouac
I will stand by this business until I die. Who else is going to host a friggin drunk powerpoint night? Grab one of their finest margaritas (they’re baller) or a glass of wine and post-up in front of the stage for a cozy night of youthful entertainment tucked away from a frozen campus.
1.21 | 2020 Career Fair
IYKYK 😏 // Ohio Union Grand Ballroom & Performance Hall
It’s not just about playing school once the spring hits. Whether you’re trying to grab a summer internship or a full- on career, go to the career fair. Even if you’re not on the hunt right now. Nothing beats the networking practice or the chance to learn more about entry-level positions looking for y-o-u.
1.28 | Wellness Series: Recipe Rookie to Supermarket Savvy
IYKYK 😏 // Ohio Union Barbie Tootle Room
Stop putting off your responsibilities as an adult, and learn how to cook. Start off the month by messing around with some simple stuff during syllabus week, get acclimated with your kitchen, then attend this event to dig a little deeper into healthy grocery store habits. You deserve better than gas station Subway sandwiches every day.
