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 student organizations with revoked registration as of Spring 2024. Some organizations continue to operate after their registration has been revoked despite the action taken by the university.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.

First-Generation Medical Student Association  logo

First-Generation Medical Student Association

Campus: Columbus
Status: Pending
Purpose Statement: The First-Generation Medical Student Association is an organization which aims to provide support and guidance to first-generation medical students at OSUCOM. The goal of this organization is to create a safe space and community for first-generation medical students where they can receive guidance through medical school and into residency. It serves as a networking tool for first-generation medical students to connect with each other and with faculty members as well, in hopes of creating mentorship opportunities. It also provides opportunities for first-generation medical students to mentor other first-generation pre-medical undergraduates at OSU. With only a small percentage of medical students being first in their family to attend college, it can be challenging for first-generation students to access career information and navigate higher education in medicine due to its competitive nature. Because of this, it is important to create a dedicated community for first-generation students where they can share knowledge with one another and foster an environment of support.
