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.

Out in Business

Campus: Columbus
Status: Pending
Purpose Statement: We are an organization created to unify and advocate for all Fisher College of Business (FCOB) students, both undergraduate and graduate, who identify as: gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, and questioning (“LGBTQ”). We also seek and welcome the participation of allies who may or may not identify as belonging to any of the above groups, but who believe in the organization’s intent noted above. We serve to positively affect the culture of Fisher so that all students feel encouraged to be their authentic selves among fellow students, faculty, and staff. We are committed to the core ideals of inclusivity, visibility, and professional development, which we actively work to accomplish in the following ways: 1. Provide a safe space for LGBTQ students and allies to meet, socialize, bond, and professionally network 2. Educate and inspire all students, staff, and faculty to foster an on-campus environment and culture of inclusion for LGBTQ students 3. Partner with FCOB administration to ensure a college-wide commitment of support for LGBTQ applicants to FCOB programs and students currently at FCOB; this partnership is solicited from the Associate Dean for Diversity and Inclusion and the Senior Director of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion Student Services, among others. In addition, we are committed to ancillary purposes (in no particular order) which are viewed as complementary in nature, but not mandated by this document: 4. Partner with other FCOB student organizations to offer co-sponsored educational and/or social programming relevant to our members. 5. Create and maintain strong mentorships between undergraduate and graduate students. 6. Invite and secure LGBTQ members of the central Ohio business community to speak about their professional and personal experiences. 7. Seek and share with members all careers, jobs, scholarships, grants, training, or other educational and professional opportunities available to them due to their LGBTQ status and academic performance. 8. Serve as a conduit between organizations seeking LGBTQ talent and members seeking to connect with such organizations. 9. Officially serve as a Reaching Out MBA (“ROMBA”) affiliate and encourage students to fully leverage any and all resources available as a result of this affiliation.
