Take action as an Advocate
It’s up to us to reach out to our elected officials and encourage them to take the necessary steps toward enacting policies important to Buckeyes in Ohio and across the country.
Find your legislator and build relationships
Become familiar with your elected officials in all levels of government. Elected officials count on their constituents to speak to them about what matters in their communities. Developing relationships with your local representatives is the best way to have a positive influence on the policymaking process and promote Ohio State.
Tell your story to lawmakers
Sharing your own Buckeye story is a powerful way to illustrate your support for the Buckeye Nation. Ohio State educates Ohio's future leaders, serves as an economic engine for the state, and serves the people of Ohio and the nation in countless ways. In order to be effective, we need you to be part of the storytelling.
How has Ohio State impacted your life? Personal stories have the ability to shape public policy. Contact your representatives today and let them know how Ohio State has positively impacted you.
