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.

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.

Since spring semester 2020, many student organizations have been operating virtually while others suspended their operations. Please contact organization leaders for specific details about their plans.

Body Sense

Campus: Columbus
Status: Active - Established
Purpose Statement: Our purpose is to advocate for a more inclusive Body Positivity Movement by exploring the intersectionality of identity and our relationships with our bodies. We believe strongly that body positivity is not a "women's issue." We are unique in that we attempt to embrace the movement while shifting away from its overwhelming focus on cisgendered white women. We aim to take our meeting discussions deeper than the typical rhetoric of "barbie dolls and social media." With this in mind, meeting themes surround body image, self-love, wellness, and the stigma surrounding eating disorders. We aim to accomplish these goals through meetings every other week, social events, collaborations with other student orgs, and the coordination of the Columbus, OH, National Eating Disorders Assosiation (NEDA) Walk each spring. In 2019, we raised over $30,000 for research and treatment of eating disorders.
