Taste of OSU 2014 to deliver a night of international food, cultural exhibits and performances

The Office of International Affairs, along with more than 30 Ohio State student organizations and Student Life Dining Services chefs, are coming together to prepare an evening of international food, exhibits and cultural performances for the campus community at the 2014 Taste of OSU, which is set for Friday, February 7 from 5 - 9 p.m. in the Ohio Union.

The event is free and open to all Ohio State students, faculty, staff, alumni, family and friends. Tickets to purchase small samplings of international foods cost $1 each (Cash and BuckID only). The student organizations will prepare foods with an international flavor that are characteristic of their home countries.

The evening will be highlighted by the international foods, cultural exhibits and performances presented by the student organizations.

A wide range of student organizations and university departments come together in support of this Ohio State Signature Event, which last year attracted close to 4,000 people.
