The OSU Walking Tour

The Ohio State University boasts over 60,000 students and is one of the largest University Campuses in the country. OSU is so big that its campus, along with the surrounding areas, make up an entire district of the city: The University District.

No trip to OSU is complete without the traditional O-H-I-O picture

Founded in 1870 as the Ohio Agricultural and Mechanical College, OSU is full of both the historic and the modern, tradition and discovery.

Join me for a walking tour of some the major points of interest. You’ll learn about some of the incredible student traditions, explore hidden gems, and maybe even become an honorary buckeye!

This tour is perfect for anyone who wants to see a unique part of Columbus. While I graduated from OSU, I do not give admission-based tours. Instead, I like to show off campus as a local might see it while sharing he unique and interesting history of a world-recognized university.

Thank you for your interest in ShowMeColumbus Tours!

For the safety of our guides and guests, we have made the tough decision to hold off on providing tours at this time. Many of the places we visit are either closed or at reduced capacity and space is at a premium. While we would love to further help you explore, discover, and connect with this great city, it seems like the best option is to wait until things are back to normal to continue the tours you love.

Please keep an eye on our webpage, or drop us a line ( to get notified when tours resume. We'll be launching Crimes, Cons, and Cocktails (Famous Columbus Crimes) and the Boos and Brews (Haunted HIstory) tour again when it's safe.
