Welcome Home!

This year's CFAES Homecoming Weekend, October 5-7, will be here sooner than you think and better than ever.

Homecoming Schedule:

Friday, October 5th – Enjoy the Homecoming Parade and cheer on the CFAES student club floats. Parade begins at 6 p.m.

Saturday, October 6th – Join us at the Fallfest Tailgate, which will be held rain or shine on Saturday, Oct. 6, at the Nationwide & Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center before the Buckeyes face the Hoosiers of Indiana University at 4 p.m. in Ohio Stadium. Expect delicious tailgate fare, excellent entertainment and some CFAES camaraderie. We will be celebrating the anniversary classes from 1968 and 1993. The Tailgate starts at 11:30 a.m. and runs until 3 p.m., one hour before kickoff.

Sunday, October 7th - The university luncheon to celebrate the Class of 1968 will be held at the Ohio Union. Register by contacting customer service at or 800-762-5646.

Ticket sales start July 23rd at 2 p.m.  Ticket Prices:

Tailgate + Football Ticket is $135* - SOLD OUT

•         To be eligible for football tickets, CFAES alumni must be sustaining members of The Ohio State Alumni Association.  To be a sustaining member, you can make a $75 donation to any OSU fund that you like!  (We’re pretty fond of CFAES Scholarship Funds, but you can give to support anything at all.) 

•         Recent Alumni (Class of 2008 – 2018) pay the new alumni price so the cost of a tailgate + football ticket is $115.

•         Class of 1968 alumni get two complimentary Tailgate tickets.  They can purchase football tickets for $98 apiece.  In order to process complimentary registration, we ask that 1968 alumni register by calling the Customer Service Center at 614-292-2281 or 800-762-5646.  They can also handle football ticket purchases.

* Football tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Limit of four tickets per household.

Tailgate Only Ticket is $35.

Purchase Tailgate and football tickets by calling the Customer Service Center at 614-292-2281 or 800-762-5646 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
