Buckeye Game Day 2021
Thank you so much for your patience, understanding, and support during the 2020 season. As a result, all of our OSUDC partner bars are back and ready to serve you in-person this season! OSUDC continues to monitor how the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting the greater DMV area and reserves the right to revert our in-person events back to virtual events at any time.
As you make your way back to our partner bars, please be kind to staff and tip them well! Returning to in-person events is a group effort, so please be understanding and patient with staff at our partner bars as they work to serve you every week. Masks are highly encouraged and in some places, are required. For more information, please refer to the full COVID protocols of each Game Day partner located on our website.
To volunteer for our Game Day committee, submit your availability here. Questions? Email Melissa Wasser: firstname.lastname@example.org

For $25, you are a member of OSUDC; for $75+, you are a member of OSUDC and a sustaining member of OSUAA, which makes you eligible for OSUAA benefits such as football tickets. Membership dues are tax deductible contributions to our OSUAA current use fund that makes programming available to area alumni. Dues can be paid at one time, or you can set up recurring payments.
We offer two ways to become a member:
Option 1) Yearly Membership to Alumni Club of Washington, D.C. | Join now
If you simply want to join the Alumni Club of Washington, D.C. you can do so for a modest donation of $25 per year. This option is open to both Ohio State alumni and Ohio State fans.
Option 2) Yearly sustaining membership to OSUAA + Alumni Club of Washington, D.C. | Join now
Becoming a sustaining member of The Ohio State University Alumni Association requires a yearly donation of $75 (which makes alumni eligible for football tickets and other great benefits).
