2012, aka Columbus OH’s 200th birthday

Happy 200th birthday, Columbus!

I recently received an email from E. Gordon Gee, Ohio State University‘s president.

Columbus, Ohio, won my heart on my first visit here in 1990, and I am
happy to say the city has continued to embrace our great University.
This year marks the 200th anniversary of the city’s founding, and
celebrations are scheduled throughout 2012, with festivals, arts
exhibitions, performances, and so much more. I hope you will take a
moment to check out the University-related events on the calendar link
http://outreach.osu.edu/200Columbus and find an event that becomes a
must-see on your list.

Columbus is a vibrant setting for The Ohio State University — as both
the city and the University grow and change to meet the challenges of
the 21st century. I urge you to experience the city at its fullest,
during this bicentennial month and throughout the year. I plan to do
the same.

Sincerely,

E. Gordon Gee
President

There’s always plenty to do in Columbus – and I figure that since 2012 is the 200th anniversary of its founding, I figure “stuff to do around here” will be kicked up a notch during the upcoming year. :-) So, if you’re going to be traveling to Columbus any time soon, are already here, or need a reason to visit, check out the city’s bicentennial page for more info!
