Student Involvement Fairs

The Student Involvement Fair (SIF) is the best place to find a student organization that meets your needs and interests. There are two annual Student Involvement Fairs at the Ohio State University. One takes place during Welcome Week and is on the Main Oval. The other takes place in January just as classes start back for the spring semester and is held in the Ohio Union. 

SIF - Autumn

Held during the first week of the autumn semester, members of more than 700 OSU student organizations and campus departments will be on the Oval to share with you more information about their organizations. This is your first and best opportunity to chat with them and start determining what you're going to get involved with outside of your classes.

Save the Date for Student Involvement Fair - Autumn
Sunday, August 20, 2017 from 4-7 p.m. on the Oval.
The fair will feature over 700 organizations, University Departments, and non-profit organizations.

Registration for the Autumn Student Involvement Fair has closed. Please contact with any questions. 

SIF - Spring

The Student Involvement Fair - Spring takes place each year in early January, giving new and returning students an opportunity to explore more options for their involvement.  Smaller and more intimate than the Student Involvement Fair held during Welcome Week, the Student Involvement Fair-Spring gives students a perfect chance to meet people and learn about the great things Ohio State's student organizations are doing.

Save the Date for Student Involvement Fair - Spring
Thursday, January 18, 2018 from 4-7 p.m. in the Ohio Union.
The fair will feature over 300 student organizations.


Registration will open from October 15 - December 18. 

If you are with a University Department and would like to be a part of the fair, please contact for more information.

Note: As there is limited space for the event, tables will be filled on a first registered basis. Organizations who register after all spots have been filled during the registration period will be placed on a waitlist. 

Please contact with any questions or concerns.
