The Ohio State University Alumni Association

Welcome, Ohio State alumni and friends!

Jim Smith.jpgOur alumni family — 550,000-strong — is a diverse, vibrant and growing community dedicated to making our world better. We’re risk-takers and innovators. Dreamers and doers. I’ve traveled coast-to-coast meeting other alumni, and I’ve seen firsthand that Buckeyes are the most passionate and compassionate people anywhere.

We’re dedicated to helping all alumni thrive and connect, whether through career guidance, special events, or our clubs and societies that span the globe.

Remember that no matter how far you roam, Buckeyes will be nearby, and that you can always come back home to Ohio State. I did.

Jim Smith, ’91, President and CEO of The Ohio State University Alumni Association
