OSUDC’s New M
embership Method Is Here!

Recently The Ohio State Alumni Association unveiled a new method for alumni clubs and societies to collect membership dues. After a lot of careful consideration, OSUDC decided that this new method was beneficial both to the club, its current members, and all other alumni in the DC/Maryland/Virginia area. This new method will make your Club dues both tax deductible and count towards your OSUAA sustaining membership, which makes you eligible for football tickets and other great benefits. This new membership method is now in place! Click here for more information or to join/renew!
 


Ohio State Alumni Softball

It’s softball time! Our 2019 season of Capital Alumni Network softball is under way, but there’s still time to join! It is a coed league, and the season runs April-July (14 games) with a tournament in August. For more information or to join us this season, email Renita at athletics@osudc.org. Go Bucks!
