d-tix: happiness on a budget

Concerts, plays, baseball & hockey games, Wexner Center exhibits, Zoo Lights, COSI and more.

My poor wallet already seems lighter just thinking about all these incredible things…but Ohio State University has a fantastic resource that allows students to spend a relaxing night enjoying Columbus – while sticking to a budget.

d-tix at the Student Union (ground floor) is something that cannot be missed.

A quick snapshot of d-tix’s web page – can you just smell all the great deals?!

One of the many treasures at OSU, d-tix is the discount ticket hub for students – both undergraduate and professional. Discounted tickets range from sports, concerts, plays and more. Even better, some restaurants and comedy clubs in Columbus partner with d-tix and offer discounted gift cards. For example, you can purchase a $25 gift card to Champps for only $10. Or, why not buy a Cedar Point ticket for only $15?

For free tickets, students can only pick-up one ticket per BuckID. For discounted tickets, the limit is two per BuckID.  Some of the more popular tickets sell out quickly, so get there early and be prepared for a line. Tickets go on sale Tuesday at 5 pm. They can sell out, so I recommend getting there a little bit early. But, it’s a great mental break and a chance to enjoy some fresh air while you walk to the Student Union.

Business school is busy…but there is always time for a little bit of fun! And when you pay your tution and fees, you PAY for a student activity fee. So why not enjoy some of the perks? I bought tickets to a Columbus Clippers game a few months ago for my boyfriend, and we had a wonderful time at the game! My roomie and I are planning on seeing the Nutcracker in December – tickets go on sale in November and they are only $5! Can you think of a better deal or way to celebrate the holiday season?!

So go check out d-tix during your free time (that’s actually a laughable concept while in school…) and see what sparks your interest!

Talk to you guys soon!
