Give to Ohio State



The Ohio State University athletics program is one of the most respected, comprehensive, and successful athletics programs in the nation. The Department supports the university’s mission by providing student-athletes with exceptional educational and athletic opportunities and is committed to national leadership, excellence, and the highest ethical standards in intercollegiate athletics. More than 900 student athletes participate in 36 varsity sports—16 for men, 17 for women, and three co-ed. Each year, Ohio State teams claim numerous Big Ten championships, compete in NCAA tournaments, and vie for national titles, while producing countless individual conference and national champions, All-American performers and scholar-athletes. In addition to athletic prowess, Ohio State athletic teams consistently lead the Big Ten in the number of Academic All-Big Ten and Academic All-Americans.
