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.

"When I first saw this event advertised, I was really excited because there are a lot of industry events that you can go to that are hosted around the country, but it was really refreshing to see one that was hosted by a fellow university and a fellow TPEG."

"Many professionals including myself used the phrase “I wish we had this when I was in school.” The information and contacts you make are invaluable and are not easily found elsewhere."
