I’m a sustaining member of The Ohio State University Alumni Association (OSUAA) – what’s the difference?

Although the Alumni Club is a chartered organization of the OSUAA, we are distinct organizations, each with its own membership. The OSUAA was founded in 1879. It operates internationally, and its vision is to be the heart of the Buckeye alumni community, inspiring and cultivating engaged citizens. Information on the governance, strategic plan, and operation of the OSUAA can be found on the OSUAA website

The Alumni Club is an organization for alumni and friends of Ohio State in Greater New York. We host sports, social, service, networking, and cultural events year-round for Buckeyes in NYC. We also help OSU with its student recruitment efforts and distribute approximately $10,000 in scholarship money annually to local students attending Ohio State.
