Find a Student Organization

There are over 1,400 student organizations at Ohio State and over half of all students join a student organization. Students who choose to get involved achieve many positive outcomes - leadership skills, better grades, friendships and mentors, and make a big campus seem small. Use the tools below to search for, find, and get involved with student organizations.

You can also connect with many of our student organizations at our Student Involvement Fairs in August and January. Check out the Student Involvement Fairs webpage for the latest information.

For individualized assistance find the student organization that's right for you, schedule a Get Involved Consultation. These 30-minute meetings will provide a personalized list of recommendations based on your interests and aspirations.

Since spring 2020, many student organizations have been operating virutally or have otherwise significantly adapted their operations. Please contact the listed leaders and/or advisor for details about how best to connect with that organization.

Please consult this list of student organizations with revoked registration as of August 2021. Some organizations continue to operate after their registration has been revoked despite the action taken by the university. We encourage you to review an organization’s status before becoming involved with it, especially because sometimes an organization’s status is revoked due to serious concerns like hazing and other behavior that risks your health and safety.

The CCBS Student Organization

Campus: Columbus
Status: Active - Established
Purpose Statement: The purpose of Consilience: The CCBS Student Organization is to create a forum for interdisciplinary dialogue amongst undergraduate, graduate, and post doc students. It is our belief that many of the scientific questions posed by the different disciplines reflect different approaches to the same underlying phenomena, rather than isolated queries unique to any particular discipline. It can only benefit our understanding of the underlying phenomena if we are exposed to the different scientific approaches used by fields outside of our own. Furthermore, it is important to develop the valuable skill of explaining, in an intelligible manner, what one is working on, to intelligent people outside of one’s own discipline. Consilience: The CCBS Student Organization will help to facilitate cross-disciplinary collaborative projects aimed at combining different scientific approaches to understand the underlying phenomena. In addition, Consiience: The CCBS Student Organization will strive to increase awareness and communication between the disciplines so that graduate students can take advantage of what the disciplines outside of their own have to offer.
