About the Planniversary

The City and Regional Planning program at The Ohio State University celebrates its 60th anniversary in 2018. Over its 60 years, the program has had a significant impact on student development, local and global communities, and the planning field at large.

The week-long Planniversary celebration aims to share with our alumni and friends the history of the program, current research and the future of the planning profession. Join us for events that will spur conversation, reconnection and opportunities to give back.

Help us plan

We've put together a brief survey that asks:

1) What are you up to professionally?
2) What are your favorite memories from your time in the program?
3) How would you like to celebrate the PLANNIVERSARY?

Thanks in advance for taking a moment to share with us. We're excited to hear from all of our alumni from the PhD, master's and undergraduate programs.

Take the survey!
