Looking for a Student Organization to get Involved on Campus?
Two new student groups are forming around access to education! Both of these groups are new this year and have many leadership opportunities--great for meeting new friends, enhancing your resume, and refining your leadership skills, all while getting your Buckeye spirit into gear!
Buckeyes for Appalachia
Ohio's Appalachian region is a diverse and unique region which has historically faced severe economic challenges. Many students from Appalachia are first-generation college students, and many are from small, rural communities. Students who are first-generation college students often face additional challenges adjusting to college life, as family does not share "what to expect" at college. This group will provide opportunities to have fun while give back to Appalachian communities through several means, including inspiring Appalachian middle and high school students to take the steps necessary to reach higher education. This group will also combat the negative stereotypes that exist about Appalachian communities by fun and effective outreach to the campus community. Students who are not from Appalachia but would like to participate are also welcome! Email Vonna Page at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
First Generation Students at Ohio State
As first generation college students, we strive to make the transition for high school students to college a smooth and informed experience. We will provide opportunities for our members to make their futures successful and therefore raise the retention for first generation students at The Ohio State University.
Students who are not first generation but are interested in the organization are also welcome to join!
