Taste of OSU is an Ohio State signature event that brings together more than 50 student organizations to provide a night of international food, cultural performances and exhibits to a crowd of about 4,000 attendees. This year, Taste of OSU will take place on February 17 from 5 – 8:30 p.m. in the Ohio Union.
