Student Organization 150-Hour Service Challenge

To celebrate and honor the university's sesquicentennial anniversary, Student Activities is challenging student organizations to complete 150 service hours during the 2019-2020 academic year.


How does my organization participate?

Active and Pending registered student organizations can log hours. No direct enrollment is necessary to participate in this challenge, simply log hours as you serve. The form will close on March 20, 2020. Hours completed in the 2019-2020 academic year until March 20, 2020 are able to be counted for this challenge.

To log hours, complete the form at the bottom of this page.

For questions on your organization's status, the organization's president, treasurer, or advisor can log into the Management System to view the current status, or you can contact csls@osu.edu.


Why should my organization do this challenge?

In line with the Student Organization Success Framework, Community Engagement is an important element of building and maintaining a strong and successful student org on campus. 

This service challenge can apply to many outcomes of the Student Org Success Framework, with direct emphasis in Connection to Student Organizations, Affinity with the University, and Commitment to Social Change.

To recognize the efforts of student organizations who reach 150 hours, we will honor these groups at Student Life Leadership Awards in April 2020.


Service-related resources to consider as you participate in this challenge:

  • Attend a local service trip with your student org members.
  • Stay up-to-date with upcoming opportunities by signing up for the Pay It Forward newsletter that advertises ways to serve.
  • Don't see a service experience you're looking for and need help creating your own experience? Reach out to Pay It Forward co-director Parris Miller for a service consultation at miller.8124@osu.edu.
  • For creating goals and action plans regarding your service and organization's purpose, connect with a Student Organization Success Coach.

Use this form to submit your service hours completed as part of the Student Org 150-Hour Service Challenge. Submit a separate form for each date that a service experience took place.

Forms must be submitted no later than March 20, 2020 to be considered for program recognition.  Service completed within this academic year may be recorded as a part of this program.

For questions on this program, you may email csls@osu.edu
