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.

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.
