Urban Meyer installed a Student Appreciation Day at Ohio State as one of his first acts as head football coach.

Entering the sixth year, Meyer, always the evaluator, has revamped his yearly offering to Buckeye students. The program confirmed Tuesday it will host the annual appreciation day on April 8. 

The revamped perks actually go further than just live music, free food, and photo ops. 

From Nicholas McWilliams of The Lantern:

There are plans for a DJ, in addition to free subs and ice cream sandwiches provided by Meijer, along with water bottles with gift cards enclosed. There is the possibility of a giveaway to a select number of the first students in attendance, although more details should arise closer to the event.

There will be competitions held after practice has concluded such as the fastest student event, along with designated areas where students can have their picture taken with the national championship trophy and Brutus. Students can also have their picture taken with band equipment and football gear like shoulder pads and helmets.

An expected Snapchat filter and hashtag will be implemented closer to the date of the event, and students will be chosen at random from a to-be-determined Twitter hashtag to win prizes.

Should be a fun time for all students in attendance. The party starts at noon.

Ohio State kicks off its spring game the following Saturday, April 15, at 12:30 p.m. ET.
