The Ohio Union, established in 1910, was the first student union at a public university. Serving The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, United States, the union functions as the student activity center; providing facilities for student activities, organizations/events, and a meeting place for campus and community interaction. Many student services and programs are housed in the union, along with dining and recreational facilities. It also serves as the home base for the D-Tix program, which provides discounted tickets to students. On March 29, 2010, a new building was erected to house the union.
