Independence Day Alumni Celebration 

Fireworks over The Warner Library and Student CenterEvery year the campus hosts its Annual Independence Day Concert & Fireworks during which the Annual Alumni Celebration is held.  We need approximately 40 volunteers to ensure that this fun-filled evening goes smoothly.

Last year's event was hugely successful with almost 500 alumni and their families in attendance.  All volunteers that register to work a 2-hour block of time will receive a free t-shirt and complimentary admission to the event.  Please contact Pat Whilding at 366-9136 or whilding.1@osu.edu to register as a volunteer for the Independence Day Alumni Celebration.
