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 January 2023. Some organizations continue to operate after their registration has been revoked despite the action taken by the university.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.

Oval Dogs

Campus: Columbus
Status: Active - New/Re-Established II
Purpose Statement: This organization's primary focus will be to provide a solid support system of friends, canine-lovers, and puppy owners to all the dogs who love frolicking through the Oval on a sunny day. We also welcome all non-dog owners to come and hang out with dogs. Intended membership is open to any and all students with a fondness for dogs. By giving students the opportunity to spend time with furry friends, Oval Dog's mission is to decrease the number of annual reckless adoptions that result in unwanted dogs and full shelters. By educating our peers on the difficulties as well as the enjoyable aspects of pet parenting, we hope to provide a more realistic outlook on pet adoption and encourage those not able to be pet owners to come enjoy the company of dogs of various shapes and sizes whenever desired.
