Our Community

The more engaged you are with the community, the more successful you will become. Wherever you want to go, we can help you get there. We support you in taking on exciting new challenges. There’s always room to grow at Ohio State. Your success is our success!

Our student community is vibrant, inclusive, collaborative and serviced-oriented.  Our faculty and staff are accessible, supportive, and engaging.  We give new students a head start in connecting with fellow classmates and faculty through Buckeye Launch (Orientation), SocialEyes, Interprofessional Education & Practice (iPEP) collaborative, and the student run Big Sib/Little Sib tradition.  The OptomEyes seminar supports first-year students' transition, and launches exploration of leadership skills and career interests. Additionally, our numerous student organizations provide professional, social and networking opportunities for all students.

This community extends well beyond campus as our large, diverse and supportive alumni community invest in helping us train their future colleagues. This becomes your professional network for life. Once a BuckEYE always a BuckEYE!
