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.

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.

Since spring semester 2020, many student organizations have been operating virtually while others suspended their operations. Please contact organization leaders for specific details about their plans.

Fostering Achievement Network  logo

Fostering Achievement Network

Campus: Columbus
Status: Active - New/Re-Established II
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 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 monthly member meetings 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 workforce attire suiting at no cost to students (https://ellesun.org/services/).
