The Ohio State University Pre-Optometry Club is an excellent way to either examine possible career options or to strengthen your decision to pursue a career in optometry. Guest speakers provide information about the application process and the many aspects of the optometric field. Not only are members given the opportunity to interact with outstanding OSU faculty, but they are also surrounded by fellow students who share similar interests, goals, and the same curriculum.

Each year many exciting activities are planned for the club. Members may attend informational meetings and social events, as well as participate in community service and fundraising activities. Semester newsletters highlight the group's activities, job opportunities, and any changes that are made in the application requirements for optometry school.
