OSU Student Organizations:
With almost 1,400 student organizations, Ohio State provides a wide range of opportunities for students to get involved. Student organizations have a significant impact in providing effective learning environments for students, preparing them to live and work in a global community. In addition to building lasting friendships, student organizations provide many benefits including serving as a medium for academic discourse, personal growth, leadership development, intercultural understanding and community engagement. Moreover, research suggests that involved students tend to perform better academically and are more likely to graduate when compared with their non-involved peers.
