As the Director of Spirits and Traditions, Casey and his committee plan events centered around Ohio State's signature programs, including: Welcome Week, Buckeye Kickoff, Homecoming and the Homecoming Parade, Buckeye Nation Week, and Commencement Week. We like to say that Spirit and Traditions is responsible for welcoming you to the University as a new student and saying "see ya later" as you graduate.
