Pay It Forward


Pay It Forward is a student cohort within the Office of Student Life, made up of 22 students on 6 different committees. Everyone has their own unique job to help fulfill the following mission, vision, and goals.

Pay It Forward provides Ohio State students with regular, easily-accessible service opportunities on campus and in the Columbus community. Working to help students pursue their passions within service, Pay It Forward educates and exposes students to avenues of civic engagement in a variety of areas. Fueled by hope and positivity, Pay It Forward allows students to match a personal cause to promote change within the community.
