Fiesta Bowl 2016

Happy New Year! We hope you have a great celebration Thursday night, then join us for the Fiesta Bowl as the Buckeyes take on the Fighting Irish at 1pm on New Year’s Day!

If you’re in town for the game, we’ll have gamewatches at all five of our official gamewatch locations around the DC area! These are the only bars that are guaranteed to have every Ohio State game on, with sound, and raffles + Buckeye swag for sale to benefit our Spearman scholarship fund, plus great food and drink specials! Click here for more information on our official gamewatch locations.

If you are in Washington, DC, come on over to Solly’s U Street Tavern, or Parlay in Dupont.

In Maryland, stop by Rock Bottom Bethesda to catch the Buckeyes.

Don Tito is our new Arlington home for all Buckeye football games.

In western Fairfax, Loudoun, Prince William, and beyond, come to Buffalo Wild Wings – Gainesville and connect with local alumni while watching the game.


Call for Gamewatch Volunteers
Will you be in town for New Year’s? Coming to our gamewatches for the Fiesta Bowl? We want you!

OSUDC Volleyball Team
We are currently forming the OSUDC volleyball team for this winter, and we want YOU! All games are against other alumni club teams. We are particularly looking for more women, as it is a co-rec league. Interested in other sports? We also play softball (spring/summer) and flag football (autumn). Email Jeff at athletics@osudc.org for more information.

John Glenn Washington Academic Internship Program Outreach
The John Glenn Washington Academic Internship Program is looking for mentors and possible internship opportunities in Washington, DC. The Program is expanding into the international agency fields, and environmental policy areas. If you would like more information on how you can “pay forward” and help the Program please contact Kathryn Hogan at hogan.124@osu.edu. Without the support of local alumni, this program would not be as strong as it is.
