What is SITE ?
Students in Themed Entertainment (SITE OSU for short) is a Themed Entertainment conference specifically designed for university students. Bringing together Themed Entertainment clubs across North America, we aim to inspire and support those with aspirations to pursue a full-time professional career in the Themed Attractions/Entertainment Industry.
Over the years, professionals and students alike gathered at Ohio State's campus to share their stories, uniting our favorite industry with three days of unparalleled networking potential. We love hosting this event for all students interested!
What to Expect if You Come?
SITE is a great opportunity to network with other students interested in themed entertainment as well as professionals who are currently in the industry or were in the industry.
The night before the event, we host a social gathering in our very own Scott Labs on OSU's campus. It is an opportunity for networking, conversation, and social time between students and professionals.
The main day of the event is jam packed full of events. To start, we gather all together to introduce the event, and in the past we've had speakers kick off the event. Then, majority of the day we split into break out rooms to listen to different professionals tell their stories about what they do or have done. It is a great opportunity to ask questions and broaden your perspective of the industry.
After a few breakout rooms, we gather together as a group again to listen to recent grads speak about their experience in the industry, and the panel opens up to students for questions.
TPEG OSU provides lunch for all guests, providing the opportunity to socialize and network between other students and professionals.
The last part of the day consists of another panels with current industry professionals, answering questions asked by students, and also another presentation presented by a professional.
This is a rough layout of the organization of SITE, but we aspire to improve it every year and gather opinions from students to make it an even better event!
