2017/07/17 – Fourth Annual Faculty and Staff Appreciation Football Game - Human Resources at Ohio State

Fourth Annual Faculty and Staff Appreciation Football Game

Ohio State is an astounding place, largely thanks to exceptional faculty and staff who contribute to the university’s success.

In appreciation of their many contributions, faculty and staff are invited to opt-in for a chance to be randomly selected to receive four complimentary tickets to the Faculty and Staff Appreciation Buckeye Football Game. The date for this year’s game is Saturday, September 23, when Ohio State faces the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

To be eligible to be randomly selected to receive the appreciation football game tickets, faculty and staff are required to opt-in by July 31, 2017, at 11:59 p.m.

Ticket recipients and their guests are invited to participate in special game-day activities before the game at the Faculty and Staff Appreciation Tailgate Party.

Faculty and staff who attended the 2016 Faculty and Staff Appreciation Buckeye Football Game enjoyed a memorable day. Here is a sampling of experiences along with some awesome photos shared by last year’s recipients:

“I was so excited to have won the tickets to the Ohio State tailgate party and game! It was the first one that my family and I have attended since I started working here 15 years ago. It was a great day with my family and made me decide that I would start applying for season tickets like the rest of my co-workers. Thank you for a wonderful day!”
