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 Some organizations continue to operate after their registration has been revoked despite the action taken by the university.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

Health Education And Development Services for Underprivileged Populations

Campus: Columbus
Status: Pending
Purpose Statement: The Health Education Activities and Development Services for the Underprivileged Population (HEADS-UP) works with local non profits and public middle and high schools to develop a sustainable healthcare literacy curriculum for the students attending those schools/programs who are interested in medicine. The purpose of this program is to improve healthcare literacy by means of education, mentorship and resource support for children who are in an educationally, socially and economically disadvantaged position. HEADS-UP will aim to fill the gaps in health education that are not specifically addressed in the school's current academic curriculum. By doing so - we believe that we can establish a pipeline extending from medical school all the way into 1st grade. The mainstay of HEADS UP is our work with Ethiopian Tewahedo Social Services (ETSS), a nonprofit focused on providing services to immigrant and refugee families of Columbus, OH. It is our goal to teach students of the ETSS Youth Summer Program how to build healthy habits that can be applied to their daily life by addressing subjects such as diet and nutrition, exercise, common diseases, and human anatomy. We also hope to provide these students with mentorship (with medical student volunteers) by fostering meaningful and long-lasting relationships through discussion and teaching.
