Since its start in 1982, our society has worked diligently to reconnect black alumni throughout the world with The Ohio State University.

Our goal is to be an effective link between the university and the black community by promoting fellowship and professional relationships among black alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends of the society.

Now is a perfect time to become a member or renew your membership to our society, as Ohio State is celebrating its 150th anniversary through March 22, 2020. We need all hands on deck!

Member benefits

  • Attend society-sponsored events
  • Access to learning opportunities with fellow Buckeyes

Join today

Become a member of our society by donating $30 to the Black Alumni Society Support Fund (#315446). Memberships for 2020 must be submitted or renewed by December 31, 2019.

You can increase your gift to $75 and earn sustaining membership with The Ohio State University Alumni Association at the same time. The additional $45 will support the Black Alumni Society’s scholarship program. Your tax-deductible contribution allows income from this fund to support a scholarship for a full-time junior, senior or graduate student with a declared major.

Please direct questions to We look forward to seeing many new faces in 2020.
