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 Some organizations continue to operate after their registration has been revoked despite the action taken by the university.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

EcoCAR Challenge Team at The Ohio State University

Campus: Columbus
Status: Active - Established
Purpose Statement: The EcoCAR Team at the Ohio State University is a group of undergraduate and graduate students who convert a GM donated vehicle into a hybrid-electric vehicle. The project must emphasize fuel economy, lowered emissions, consumer acceptability, connectivity, and autonomy. We compete with other universities throughout North America in an annual EcoCAR Challenge competition. This competition evaluates vehicle design in a variety of dynamic and static events over the course of 4 years of the automotive design process. The 2017-2018 academic year marked the end of the EcoCAR 3 Challenge Competition centered around a 2016 Chevy Camaro. The 2021-2022 academic year marked the end of the EcoCAR MC Challenge Competition centered around a 2019 Chevy Blazer. The 2022-2023 academic will see the start of a new competition EcoCAR EV Challenge which will be centered around a 2023 Cadillac Lyriq.
