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.

Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers

Campus: Columbus
Status: Active - Established
Purpose Statement: The Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers was founded in 1974 in Los Angeles, California by a group of engineers who made it their objective to form a national organization of professional engineers to serve as role models in the Hispanic community. Since 1990 there have been organizations who made it their mission to form a similar community at Ohio State. CHEA, Council of Hispanics in Engineering and Architecture, and afterwards OHSEA, Organization of Hispanics Students in Engineering and Architecture were the premier organizations until 2003 when SHPE became official by its name, the Society of Hispanic and Professional Engineers. Today we are brought together by heritage, social responsibility and desire to improve the equality of all people through the use of science and technology. We value excellence in education, professional pursuits and leadership. We obtain excellence through integrity, empowerment, achievement, diversity and continuous improvement.
