A MY WORLD TUESDAY POST.
The SCARLET and GRAY BUCKEYES
A QUICK GLIMPSE AT SOME OF THE CAMPUS. ( I had the good fortune to be there as a student from 1964-1969)
As I face this Historical Marker Mirror Lake is to my back. To find out where OSU played their first home game on November 1 1890 CLICK. Next, we have a frozen Mirror Lake (I could tell a few stories)
This is where I learned to walk at a very fast pace going from one class to the next.( Loved organic chemistry lab ) but after spending three hours in “lab” at lunch no one wanted to sit next to me (BAD SMELL).
Those hills may not look that big but when skate boards first came out that entire area was filled with skate boarders in the evenings (including myself). One evening I loaned my “board” to some gal from Baker Hall and the first time she went down the hill she fell and broke her leg.
Several virtual tours of the campus are available just CLICK.
STRADLEY HALL is where I lived for most of my five years at Ohio State. For me in many ways it was the Best of Times and the Worst of Times. I just wish I knew then what I know now. This quick visit to OSU has brought back a lot of memories and it was a fun place to visit on this cold January day.
1. “Buckeyes” has been the official Ohio State nickname since 1950
2. The tradition of placing Buckeye Leaves on the Ohio State helmets was started in 1968 by Woody Hayes
3.The Victory Bell is rung after every Ohio State victory. It was a gift of the classes of 1943, 1944 and 1945.
4.Scarlet and Gray:Ohio State’s official school colors since 1878
