There are over 1,400 student organizations at Ohio State. Use the search tools below to get involved, initiate collaboration, or attend programs hosted by our various student organizations. Contact information for each organization is listed in their online record. Use the "advanced search" tools to focus your search even more and find an organization that's right for you!

Please consult this list of Organizations Suspended by the University as of Spring 2020. Some suspended organizations continue to operate 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.

During spring semester 2020, many student organizations will be operating virtually while others may suspend their operations. Please use the search features below to find and contact organization leaders for specific details about their plans.

Fostering Achievement Network

Campus: Columbus
Status: Active - New/Re-Established I
Purpose Statement: Only 3% of former foster youth achieve a bachelor's degree in their lifetime. The purpose of the Fostering Achievement Network (FAN) is to eliminate this statistic and cultivate community among our brothers and sisters of the foster care system. FAN is comprised of former foster youth seeking higher education as well as mentors and community partners offering a network of support. Each student is invited to participate in a monthly Lunch & Learn series focused on building relationships and equipping students with the tools needed for academic and personal success. Students are also eligible for stipends and other incentives to support their achievement, including emergency financial aid, professional attire when entering the workforce (Project PASSION) , and milestone achievement awards. FAN is supported by Ohio Reach (https://ohioreach.org/.) and ACTION Ohio (https://fosteractionohio.org/) and partners with a community-based organization called El'lesun to provide the workforce attire at no cost to students (https://ellesun.org/services/).
