As spring approaches, so does the opening of the new Ohio Union at The Ohio State University. With such a great addition to campus, they couldn’t just have one day of grand openings, so they decided to have 30 days to make the celebration last!

The official grand opening is on Monday, March 29, when you can get your first peek at this great new facility. Events begin at 11 a.m. and include prizes, music, games, food and free Ohio Union keepsakes. The ribbon cutting will be at noon.

Some other great events that will be going on during this 30 day celebration are a concert with Black Shelton on March 31 and an Evening with Saturday Night Live’s Andy Samberg on April 25.

I recently had a hard-hat tour of the Union and I can tell you firsthand that this space is great. Complete with Woody’s Tavern and Sloopy’s Diner, it will be a great place to eat when you are on campus. And if you're planning a meeting or event, make sure to check out all 30 of their meeting and event spaces .

The new Ohio Union will definitely be a hopping place on campus for both students and guests. To keep up with the progress until the grand opening, you can check out their Web site .
