The Ohio Union

Plan an Event


I want to thank you for all of your efforts in supporting the our event last week. You were tremendous – you clearly have an exceptional talent in meeting planning and creativity and problem solving! Our members loved the facilities at the Ohio Union. They are beautiful and comfortable, and it was great for all of us to be in an environment with so many energetic students around. Thank you to you and your team! - Angel Capital Association


Dear Ohio Union AV Department,
I just want to let you know, your AV team was so helpful to me today. They…rushed around to help me; Had an “I’ll do anything I can” attitude; Problem solved when out-of-the-box thinking was critical!; … and even made a cardboard box to help me! They did not just say, ”Sorry, I can’t help” I am so thankful to them. My presentation at the Ohio Union went so well, and it’s all thanks to them!

We had a lot of positive comments on the food and Ohio Union’s catering this year from our attendees! They were happy with the variety of foods on the breakfast buffet, and the healthy and “real” food options available. We have a lot of vegetarians, vegans and health-conscious attendees and they were very pleased with the choices. Plus- we greatly appreciated the catering team’s flexibility with tweaking some of the pre-set menu options.”

I want to thank the staff at the Ohio Union at The Ohio State University for a beautiful reception.  The organization, efficiency, service, friendliness and attention to the guests from servers, bartenders and the rest of the staff was flawless. The food was absolutely delicious and elegantly presented. All of our guests were talking about the fabulous hors d’oeuvres and dinners. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for making the reception an Ohio State memory of a lifetime for all of us. You’re the greatest.”

WOW! I plan approximately 80 cooking events a year around the country, and can truly say that I was blown away with the quality of service offered by the Ohio Union Events team. My event planner was a true professional, always responding in a timely manner and with impeccable professional etiquette. She did several rounds of revisions to our BEO to fit the exact needs of our program, and never once complained. To top it off, Chef Marc exceeded to the expectations of an (admittedly) high maintenance chef who proclaimed this event "text-book." If I could clone this team around the US, I would. Thank you all so much for a great program!

I received a lot of wonderful feedback from those in attendance about the facility, the layout, and they literally raved about the food.I appreciate the Sales and Event team, the catering team, the AV team, the guys who helped us haul our stuff in and out of the building, EVERYONE for their assistance in making the seminar such a smooth and seamless process for us.  I was just discussing with the rest of the team this week their thoughts and everyone really enjoyed being at the Ohio Union.”

"Once again your team did the Ohio Union proud. Our Ohio Union Event Coordinator was an event professional who put my mind completely at ease from our first meeting. As you probably recall, due to the nature of our agency’s work we have some special requirements of the menu at this event. She took a personal interest in not only meeting but exceeding our expectations and came to us with creative and delicious substitutions and solutions. I am still hearing rave reviews of the meal and the unique dessert! From start to finish, this year’s Celebrities for Diabetes was top-notch and we owe it all to you and your team."
