STUDENT RECRUITMENT 

Throughout the year, OSULA represents Ohio State at several college fairs around Los Angeles.  We pass out Ohio State literature and answer the questions of potential new Buckeyes.

Fairs are generally held on weekday evenings.  It’s easy, Ohio State provides ‘facts and answers sheets’, and we always send you with others who have done it before.

For more information, please contact the OSULA scholarship committee at LAClub@osu.edu.
