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.
