This past Saturday we were fortunate enough to provide a photo booth at Ohio State University for the Stadium Scholarship Program, (SSP). The SSP had their formal dance, “Escapades” at The Huntington Club inside of Ohio Stadium, aka the “The Horseshoe.” To cap off the evening guests walked out onto the field, which is always a thrill! This was a wonderful event that was able to honor the students in SSP. Here is some more info regarding the SSP and of course some cool pics! The Stadium Scholarship Program is a cooperative program originally housed in residence quarters in the west side of Ohio Stadium – thus the name. The Program is steeped in history and a tradition of academic merit and good citizenship. It is a very close community of students who strive for excellence in leadership through meaningful involvement in the residence hall, Ohio State, and the greater Columbus community. Students participate in residence hall activities, leadership positions, community service projects, relationships with alumni, and the cooperative work program. One of the fundamental aspects of the Stadium Scholarship Program is the cooperative work program. Students work 5-7 hours a week, or 50-70 hours a quarter in the hall in exchange for the reduced discount housing fees received at the beginning of every quarter. Hours are flexible around class and exam schedules. The concept was the brainchild of Joseph A. Park, who was the university’s dean of men at the time. Park noticed that many Ohio high school students weren’t going to college because they could not afford it. In 1933, a group of 75 young male students with limited financial means moved into the Ohio Stadium. Those young men lived in barrack-like conditions in the stadium’s southwest corner, which would become known as the Tower Club. In exchange for a break on rent, the young men did all the chores in the no-frills dorm, except cooking, while they attended classes at the Ohio State University.In subsequent years, the dorm expanded along the west side of the stadium and additional names, such as Buckeye and Tower clubs, were placed on the living quarters. Through the years, the unique dorm gained national attention. First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt even visited the student living quarters housed in the Horseshoe. And, in more recent history, the dorm was featured several times during nationally televised OSU football games. Photo booths are a great addition to student sponsored events.
