Homecoming Events Announced


     COLUMBUS --In keeping with this year's theme, "Exposures,"
the 1993 Homecoming Steering Committee of The Ohio State
University has planned a week of traditions, caring and fun for
students, faculty, alumni and Columbus residents to expose them
to the diversity of the university.

     Homecoming events begin on Monday, Oct. 11, and culminate on
Saturday, Oct. 16, with the homecoming football game against
Michigan State, followed by an evening of music and recreation.

     A book drive and other fundraising events will benefit local
charities.  Throughout the week, the homecoming committee is co-
sponsoring a book drive with Project Community and the Literacy
Volunteers of America.  Books will be accepted at various campus
locations.  On Wednesday, Oct. 13, at noon, there will be group
dance lessons in the "Achy Breaky" and "Electric Slide," with
proceeds from the $1 entry fee going to the Columbus AIDS Task
Force, the University Hospitals Patient Emergency Care Fund, and
the Special Olympics.  A "Beat the Buck" raffle and "Pass the
Buck" solicitation will benefit the same groups.

     The traditional parade and pep rally will begin at 6 p.m. on
Friday, Oct. 15.  Grand Marshal Jerry Lucas, former Ohio State
and pro basketball star, will lead the Marching Band, floats, the
homecoming court, Neutron Dance Man, and other attractions down
High Street and through campus to the Oval.  The pep rally will
follow and will include crowning of the homecoming queen and
king, as well as announcement of the winners of the Beat the
Bucks raffle prizes.
