Resources for Alumni Volunteers

Student Send Offs

Each year, Ohio State alumni clubs around the country hold Student Send-Off events that allow new freshmen and transfer students and their families to meet current members of the Buckeye community prior to their arrival on Ohio State’s campus. During the program, students will have the opportunity to mingle with fellow Buckeyes, learn more about the alumni club in their hometown and get excited about starting as a Buckeye in the fall. Parents can learn more about Ohio State from local alumni as well as share their excitement and fears with other parents. For local alumni who work to raise funds for their local scholarship fund, it’s a day to meet and congratulate the students they are helping to support.

For more information, contact the alumni clubs nearest you or find your local Student Send-Off event.
