The Ohio State University Alumni Association

About us

About us

Since 1879, when six graduates founded what would become the Ohio State Alumni Association, we have dedicated ourselves to connecting alumni, students, and friends of the university in lifelong support of Ohio State and each other.

The Ohio State University Alumni Association is focused on engaging and enriching the lives of alumni by connecting them with their alma mater. The Ohio State University has nearly half a million alumni living worldwide. All are members of the Alumni Association.

The Association has a global presence through more than 50 societies and 200 clubs throughout the world. But we strive to stay connected no matter how many miles separate us, showing how firm alumni friendship is for Ohio State.

Jim Smith, ’91 became president and CEO of the alumni association March 21, 2016.
