Student Organizations

With over 1,000 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 in a multicultural society 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 service.

At last count, more than 80 social and academic organizations at OSU were available to students with interests in East Asian languages and cultures. Opportunities for extracurricular involvement through student organizations abound, with clubs covering topics from Chinese calligraphy and Buddhist studies to anime and kendo.
