Getting Involved on Campus

Friday, August 30, 2019

There’s a lot going on at OSU, and there’s a place for everyone! There are many clubs, diverse student associations and leadership opportunities on campus you can get involved in. Make memories with your fellow students and experience all the excitement!

Here’s a list of ways you can get involved on campus!

Student organizations

There are hundreds of organizations on campus to choose from. You could dance all day for charity at Cowboython or compete in a League of Legends tournament with Gamers of OSU – the choice is yours!

Interested in history? Writing? Music? We’ve got the place for you. Many majors have clubs as well! Start browsing through organizations now.

Intramurals and sports clubs 

Intramural sports are huge at OSU! Whether you played in high school or not at all, you’re welcome to play! The Department of Wellness offers many sports as intramurals and clubs – check them out.

Pro tip: Try forming a team from people in your residence hall and choose the right league for your team’s skill level. “A League” will have tougher opponents than “B League”.

Get involved with your hall

Go to those hall meetings! Eat👏that👏free👏food! When your hall does fun things like competing in activities for Homecoming, go all out! The people living around you can be your closest friends, Cowboy.
