There are over 1,300 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 Autumn 2019. 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.

SHADES (Buckeye Chapter)

Campus: Columbus
Status: Inactive
Purpose Statement: SHADES is dedicated to fostering connections among Same-Gender Loving (SGL), Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ), and supportive ally students across lines of race/ethnicity, gender, class, faith, and ability at The Ohio State University and in the Columbus community. The group's primary focus is to attract and engage people of color who are at various stages of the coming out process, understanding their sexualities and other complex questions of identity, as well as making sense of the LGBTQ community. We welcome all allies and supporters to attend our public events and educational programming that is available to the broader OSU community, as they are valuable to the continued growth, inclusion, and cohesion of our community. However, our general meetings are designated as a safe space exclusively for queer and trans people of color to understand themselves and build community, and we ask that allies respect that.
