Annual Meeting & Spring Reception
Join OSUDC for our Annual Meeting and Spring Reception at Crystal City Sports Pub on Saturday, June 16, from 4 – 7pm! This is our biggest club event of the year and includes heavy hors d’oeuvres, beer & wine, great raffle prizes, auctions for our club football tickets, and special guest speaker, Buckeye football alum and rapper Mekka Don! Bid on our club ❌ichigan tickets, sign up for tickets to the Maryland game, and help us raise money for our scholarship fund, plus meet our 2018 scholarship recipients and their families.
Mekka Don is a hip-hop artist, attorney, and entrepreneur who MTV says has led the pack in revolutionizing the way Independent artists fund their music production and generate revenue.
Mekka Don is from Columbus, Ohio but currently lives in New York City. He is a former Ohio State University football player where he graduated cum laude with a degree in Political Science (class of 2002) in only three years. He was also a member of OSU’s Homecoming court. He then went on to get his J.D. from NYU School of Law in 2006.
