Participation Guidelines

Taste of OSU update

The Office of International Affairs has cancelled Taste of OSU 2022 due to new university health and safety guidelines.

We hope to bring back this wonderful event and showcase the many talents of our international student organizations at Taste of OSU on February 17, 2023 at the Ohio Union.


The Taste of OSU Organizational Committee has written a guide to help you navigate your way through Taste of OSU. Inside the guide, you'll find information about timelines, selection criteria and food, cultural exhibit and performance guidelines, as well as expectations for the day of the event, prizes and an overview of the budget.

Applications open autumn semester.

Eligibility criteria for participation:

In order to participate in Taste of OSU, student organizations 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 12 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. View past recipes if your organization participated in Taste of OSU 2018, 2019 or 2020. Your application will not be complete until you upload your recipes to the new folder (see below) as part of the application process.

The deadline to apply is November 30 at 11:59 p.m.

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.
