As the middle of the first term of Autumn Semester draws near, recruiting, midterm studying, and loads of group work have been taking most of our time. Today a few of us MAcc students decided to take a mini-break from work and head downtown to visit the Columbus Museum of Art and we thought you might like to join us on our trip!
Our adventure started by heading to the Student Union to pick up some free tickets. As a student at Ohio State you will have the opportunity to receive several discount tickets (abbreviated d-tix) for local attractions, theater shows, concerts, sporting events and much more (Tip-be sure to go pick-up tickets early in the week as unfortunately the union was all out of discount tickets on Saturday). But the silver lining was that we were still able to use our student ID’s to purchase discounted tickets at the museum for only $8. Another perk is that the museum offers free parking! And if you happen to visit on a Sunday, don’t even worry about picking up a d-tix because Sundays are free admission days.
After purchasing tickets, our real journey began as we entered the museum and walked through several rooms full of masterpieces. In fact, even the inside of the building looked like a piece of art. As we browsed the collections, we had the opportunity to tune into our creative sides by participating in a few hands on activities.
After about an hour we were unexpectedly surprised by an event that for us girls, became one of the highlights of the trip: A wedding right in the middle of the museum! The five of us couldn’t help but sneak a peek at the bride after her bridesmaids walked down the aisle to none other than, “Beauty and the Beast,” the theme song from the classic Disney movie.
As our exploration came to a close we decided to stop for a group picture at the entrance of the museum before heading back to hit the books.
Hope you enjoyed taking this little trip with us! Until next time…
Wish us luck on our Monday midterm!
