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 Some organizations continue to operate after their registration has been revoked despite the action taken by the university.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

Inaayat Dance Team

Campus: Columbus
Status: Active - Established
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. .
