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.

Off the Lake Productions

Campus: Columbus
Status: Pending
Purpose Statement: Off the Lake Productions is The Ohio State University's only completely student-run, service-based theatre organization. Every year we have FOUR major productions whose proceeds go to a charity organization of our choice: our Cabaret, Play, Musical, and Peer Theatre One Acts. In addition to the One Acts, Peer Theatre performs skits on difficult topics for students at Ohio State and our trained facilitators give them the opportunity to reflect on what was shared and participate in a facilitated dialogue. OTL gives back to the community through various service organizations on campus and in the Columbus community. Some previous service events Off the Lake has participated in include BuckeyeThon, donating to the Mid-Ohio Food Bank, Light up the Lake, theatre workshops with All THAT (Teens Hopeful About Tomorrow), Caroling at local nursing homes, volunteering with The Harmony Project, and many more! Students can be involved in various capacities including Pit, Peer Theatre, Cast and Crew. Our overall theme is - In the Community, On the Stage, Off the Lake.
