Eligibility criteria for participation:

In order to participate in Taste of OSU, student organization must successfully submit an application.

Ways to participate

Food and Cultural Booth

Student organizations can apply to prepare food and showcase their culture with a food and cultural booth. Only 30 organizations are selected for the food preparation portion of the event.

Please note that recipes are saved and filed under your student organization to be used for four years. If your student organization re-applies to be in Taste of OSU, we will be using the same recipes. This procedure helps reduce food waste and streamline food preparation.

To apply, the organization must complete an application from above and successfully submit two recipes. View Recipe Submission for more information.

Cultural Performance

Student organizations can apply to perform on stage. The cultural performance can include dance, music, instruments and more.
