Ohio: The Horseshoe

Fraternity party rollin' full speed at Ohio State.

Columbus, Ohio – From the party animals on Lane Avenue, to Skull Session and the tailgaters of Ohio Stadium parking lot, there is nothing like watching a football game in The Ohio State University’s Ohio Stadium, aka The Horseshoe.  On this particular day, we were lucky enough to have tickets to the game versus the Indiana Hoosiers and the experience did not disappoint.

We began the party at 8:00 am in the parking lot of the stadium, that’s right, beer at 9:00 a.m., felt like a college student again.  We had some eggs and kegs at a few of the tailgater’s partoes, and then headed over to the party that happens every home game on nearly then entire campus area line of Lane Avenue. 

Skull Session at OSU's St. John's Arena

Then we headed over for the OSU Marching Band Skull Session whof every home football game. Held at St. John Arena, the Skull Session is a popular concert/pep rally, with over 10,000 fans in attendance. The event is free, but seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Finally we were rewarded with a win, but for us the game was second to the excitement of the experience that IS the Horseshoe.
