Your membership helps the Club do the following:

  • Award scholarships to students from the Chicagoland area, in fact, almost all of the funds raised go towards scholarships to students in the Chicagoland area. 
  • Meet local OSU-bound students at college fairs & the annual student send-off picnic, and help them learn about the many opportunities at Ohio State
  • Socialize together every fall for football Saturday for game watches to cheer on the Buckeyes to victory, as well as throughout the year for other Club events
  • Contribute to Ohio State’s positive image in the Chicagoland area by helping with service projects supporting worthy organizations

If you are wondering what is the difference between being a member of the OSUAA and the Club, the Alumni Club is a chartered organization of the OSUAA, we are distinct organizations, each with its own membership. The Alumni Club is an organization for alumni and friends of Ohio State in Chicagoland area. We host sports, social, service, networking, and cultural events year-round for Buckeyes in our area. We also help OSU with its student recruitment efforts and distribute scholarship money annually to local students attending Ohio State
