Columbus Bicentennial

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 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.


E. Gordon Gee

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!


Campus closed on May 30 – but lots going on this weekend in Columbus!

The university will be closed on Monday, May 30th in observance of Memorial Day. if you contact the office, please expect a delay in responses from the Fisher MBA office due to this university holiday.

Asian Festival in Columbus OH

Columbus will be hosting a few events this weekend which may be of interest to you. First, the annual Asian Festival will happen at the Franklin Park Conservatory. Admission is free and it’s a fantastic way to learn about different Asian culture, not to mention some rather excellent food! Second, this weekend marks the grand opening of Downtown Columbus’ newest venture, Columbus Commons. This park will feature live music, host various events throughout the summer and includes an old-fashioned carousel.

Enjoy your weekend … summer is just around the corner!

Columbus Commons is on the site of the old "City Center" shopping mall in downtown Columbus
