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 Some organizations continue to operate after their registration has been revoked despite the action taken by the university.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 Pre-Physician Assistant Platform logo

First-Generation Pre-Physician Assistant Platform

Campus: Columbus
Status: Active - New/Re-Established II
Purpose Statement: Representation matters, and while it is desirable by most to strive to be a flawless Pre-Physician Assistant (PA) undergraduate student and applicant to Physician Assistant school, it is extremely difficult, especially for those students who are first-generation—a term that is used to describe a person who is the first in their family to break barriers such as finishing high school, attending college, or applying to PA school. Motivated to establish a platform for those who do not have immediate access to a Physician Assistant mentor and those exclusive resources, the “First-Generation Pre-Physician Assistant Platform” is an Instagram, Youtube, and Spotify Podcast platform that acts as a 24/7 mentorship service for pre-PA students from Ohio State University and beyond. Answered by well-known, resilient, empathetic, and experienced first-generation certified Physician Assistants, PA students, and PA mentors, this platform will reveal the resources and answers to our most common pre-PA fears, which are usually not posted publicly, as we start our pre-PA journeys. This platform’s hope to assure the spiraling worries of the first-generation pre-PA students and to provide them constant access to pre-PA mentorship podcasts, videos, and other forms of resources that will always alleviate their anxieties throughout their journeys. Creating these collections of resources for these pre-PA communities, this platform will increase the access to the resources and treat the necessity of first-generation pre-PA students having a mentor and community to confide in. There, truly, is no greater feeling–community support is a necessity. So within these platforms, we encourage vulnerable conversation from Pre-PA students, PA-S's, and PA-C’s on their personal, non-traditional, first-generation journeys into the Physician Assistant profession. This 24/7 mentorship platform is dedicated to bringing attention to these resources in order to increase the number of underrepresented students interested in medicine. By acknowledging the disparities and setbacks that being first-generation has on collegiate students, this organization has proven that what once seemed impossible, is now becoming reality for first-generation students everywhere.
