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 Some organizations continue to operate after their registration has been revoked despite the action taken by the university.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

High Street Charitable Games

Campus: Columbus
Status: Active - New/Re-Established I
Purpose Statement: To raise money for local charitable organizations: On a monthly basis, all proceeds from the previous month’s charitable contributions fund will be donated to a local 501(c)3 organization as recognized under Ohio laws on charitable gaming. All club members will be allowed to vote on the destination of our organization’s charitable contributions, with preference given to local institutions. To increase awareness for and promote the game of poker: Poker is the perfect game of imperfect information combining statistics, risk management, psychology, and sheer intuition. We are seeking to elevate poker’s public image to the competition and entertainment spectacle it very well could be. By introducing players of all back grounds to the game in a friendly and fiscally responsible manner, we hope to expand the game beyond the typical poker room crowd.
