There are two approved brand fonts: Buckeye Serif 2 and Buckeye Sans 2. They are proprietary to Ohio State, are free to use, and both web and desktop versions can be downloaded at the bottom of this page. Do not use other fonts in your materials. 

If you have installed the previous version of the Buckeye fonts, please uninstall them from your computer, download the new versions below, and install/activate them. The template files on our site will not work properly unless the new fonts are used.  


Buckeye Serif 2

Our serif font, Buckeye Serif 2, offers an academic sophistication while maintaining a warm, conversational feel with its combination of soft curves and angular serifs.

Buckeye Serif 2 offers a range of weights and conveys the boldness, vitality and approachability of Ohio State. Its bolder weights work well for headlines, and its lighter weights for body copy.
