Since 1879, when six graduates founded what would become the Ohio State Alumni Association, we have dedicated ourselves to connecting alumni, students, and friends of the university in lifelong support of Ohio State and each other.
The Ohio State University Alumni Association is focused on engaging and enriching the lives of alumni by connecting them with their alma mater. The Ohio State University has nearly half a million alumni living worldwide. All are members of the Alumni Association.
The Association has a global presence through more than 50 societies and 200 clubs throughout the world. But we strive to stay connected no matter how many miles separate us, showing how firm alumni friendship is for Ohio State.
Archie Griffin became president and CEO of the Alumni Association on Jan. 1, 2004.
“As president and CEO, I want the association to be the gateway to Ohio State for all alumni," he said. "We work hard to make it possible for all graduates and former students to stay connected and make Ohio State stronger.”
The Ohio State Alumni Association was a leading model for alumni work throughout the 20th century. Griffin’s goal is to assure the association is the leading model for 21st century alumni work.
The Ohio State University Alumni Association is committed to fostering a climate of inclusion. We recognize the strength we gather from the great diversity of our alumni, and believe our future growth rests in our ability to recognize, incorporate, and enhance diversity through leadership, programs, services, employment and publications.
We are continually seeking individuals who would like to become more involved with us. Alumni are Ohio State's most enduring asset, and the Association relies on them to advance our mission to connect alumni, students, and friends in lifelong support of Ohio State and each other. In turn, we offer our alumni an array of services, including robust programming, compelling communications, and a connection to nearly 500,000 alumni worldwide.

We look forward to hearing from you soon. And Go Bucks!
