Before you begin...

You'll need to have an OSU Event Calendar that you want to display in your site.

You won't need a feed URL for the calendar. What you will need is the calendar Short Name, which appears up in the URL.

The Short Name, in this sample, is drupal-training (use all lowercase letters).
