Let’s Beat ❌ichigan!
Want to beat TSUN and help a great cause?! You can do both through our Donation Battle with the U of M Club of Washington, DC. Both clubs are giving to the amazing organization the Homeless Children’s Playtime Project. This nonprofit partners with homeless shelters in the DC to create a fun and safe space for children to play where they live. This winter, they have a priority need for toiletries as well as toys to supplement their holiday gift program. We have created an Amazon wishlist of requested items for the Playtime Project. Make your gift through 11/30 when the winner will be announced! Go Bucks! Beat TSUN!
Help us raise money for Food & Friends by buying Thanksgiving pies! Visit the OSUDC Slice of Life page to purchase your pies (by Thursday, November 21) and choose your pickup locations. Pies must be picked up at the location you select only on Tuesday, November 26!

OSUDC’s New Membership 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!
