OSUDC Volleyball Team
Volleyball season is under way, and we want YOU! All games are against other alumni club teams. We are particularly looking for more women, as it is a co-rec league. Interested in other sports? We also play softball (spring/summer) and flag football (autumn). Email Jeff at athletics@osudc.org for more information.


John Glenn Washington Academic Internship Program Outreach
The John Glenn Washington Academic Internship Program is looking for mentors and possible internship opportunities in Washington, DC. The Program is expanding into the international agency fields, and environmental policy areas. If you would like more information on how you can “pay forward” and help the Program please contact Kathryn Hogan at hogan.124@osu.edu. Without the support of local alumni, this program would not be as strong as it is.
