Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and students may be scrambling to plan the perfect day for their significant other. Luckily for all of the last minute planners out there, there are plenty of options on and around the Ohio State campus for couples to choose from.
For those who wish to stay on campus, the Ohio Union Activities Board is holding a formal Valentine’s Day Ball the night before the big day, this Saturday from 7 p.m. to midnight in the Performance Hall of the Ohio Union.
Tickets are $15 for graduate and professional students and $20 for faculty and staff, and they can be purchased at the Ohio Union Information Center. This includes a murder mystery-themed dinner, two drink vouchers, dancing and entertainment, according to OUAB’s website.
Another on-campus option on Saturday night for those who are willing to spend a little more is the Valentine’s Day dinner being held by the OSU Faculty Club from 5-8 p.m. According to The Club’s website, dinner Saturday night at their 181 South Oval Drive location starts at $40 per person and includes three courses, your choice of an appetizer, entrée and a chocolate bundt cake with drunken berries and royal icing for dessert.
But for couples looking for less candlelight and more cheering, OSU Athletics offers a great way to spend Valentine’s Day weekend by supporting the Buckeyes.
On Friday night, the wrestling team takes on Wisconsin at 7 p.m., and couples can purchase 2-for-1 tickets for this Senior Day matchup at St. John Arena.
The following day, those in attendance for the OSU Women’s Lacrosse match against Detroit at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center at 3:30 p.m. will also have the chance to have a Valentine’s date with Brutus. There will be a photo booth to commemorate the occasion and he will also be giving out Valentine’s Day cards.
That evening, bring your significant other to Value City Arena where the men’s hockey team takes on Minnesota at 7 p.m. The team is offering a special date night package that includes two tickets, two hot dogs, one large drink and one bag of popcorn for $20.
