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.

Inaayat Dance Team

Campus: Columbus
Status: Pending
Purpose Statement: Founded in 2016, OSU Inaayat is a premier Indian classical dance team at the Ohio State University. Inaayat, meaning grace in Hindi, strives to celebrate the art form of Indian classical dance and provide students with an open space to continue to practice their traditional dance form. Our members have dance backgrounds in Bharathanatyam, Kuchipudi, and Kathak, enabling each person to bring her own experiences to our culturally-rich performances. Each style fuses acting, musicality, and expression into one brilliant package. We choreograph multiple pieces that align with an overarching theme to present to members of the university and the surrounding Columbus community. We believe that art can be crafted to inform and educate audiences of new ideas and perspectives. OSU Inaayat’s overarching mission is to advocate and celebrate traditional art forms in order to increase cultural awareness and empower the Ohio State community. .
