A Family Fun Day at Ohio State’s RPAC

I’ve been a proud member of The Ohio State University Alumni Association since graduating nearly ten years ago. Member benefits are vast, but now that I’m a parent, I’m able to take advantage of another benefit: Family Fun Days.

On March 18, the OSUAA hosted a Family Fun Day at the RPAC (Recreation and Physical Activity Center), which opened during my time on campus.

We were excited to attend but were even more delighted upon arrival when we realized how much the space catered to families. I guess I missed it while enrolled, but there is a huge indoor pool that is completely designed for children, with a whirlpool, slides, a basketball hoop, and interactive elements.

Kudos to the team at OSUAA for a smooth event. Registration was easy and staff was on-site to answer questions. An impressive slate of snacks and drinks were also given to attendees. Bonus points for the awesome towels each of us received.

Whether you’re an alumni or not, try to figure out a way to get to the RPAC indoor pool with your kids.
