Clubs and societies

Alumni clubs are location based and can connect you to alumni in your area. Club members hold events, promote student scholarships, perform community service, greet prospective students and generally celebrate being part of our ever-expanding family.

Academics- and special interest-based societies are groups of Buckeyes who want to serve the university because of individual affinities. Society activities include service projects, student programming, professional development, social events and scholarship fundraising.
