Taste of OSU 2015 delivers international fare

Taste of OSUThe Office of International Affairs, along with more than 30 Ohio State student organizations and the Student Life Dining Services chefs, are coming together to prepare an evening of international food, exhibits and cultural performances for the campus community at Taste of OSU 2015, which is set for Friday, February 13 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.

Student organizations will set up booths in the Grand Ballroom and the Performance Hall to serve international cuisine and share insight into their home cultures. Performances will be live in the Great Hall and will be simulcast on the big screens throughout the Ohio Union.

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.
