The School of Earth Sciences has several excellent affiliated student organizations. If you are interested in learning more please reach out the student leaders!

Natural History's Collection Club: President TBD, Advisor Dr. Tamaki Yuri

The Natural History Collections Club is a student-led organization that acts as a hub for students interested in natural history and museum collections. Our goal is to provide undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to gain valuable career experience working with natural history collections, while also benefiting Ohio State’s own natural history collections by enhancing visibility and encouraging use through increased accessibility for research, teaching, and education. We welcome everyone from biology, geology, paleontology, anthropology, and everything in-between and beyond!

Graduate Students Club: President Michaela Hostetler, Advisor Dr. Steven Lower

The purpose of this organization is to foster a positive and productive School of Earth Sciences (SES) graduate student experience by providing efficient communication between the SES graduate students and the School, establishing independent responsibilities for the SES graduate student body, and encouraging academic, developmental, and social relationships within the SES graduate student body.

Orton's Earth History Club: President TBD

Orton's Earth History Club (OEHC) was organized to help Earth History division or related graduate students (and undergraduates) to connect with each other. The name honors the iconic Orton Hall of OSU, which houses the Geological Museum and Geology Library. OEHC holds biweekly seminars in a laid-back and friendly environment to discuss various aspects of research such as presenting at conferences, writing thesis, and internship or fieldwork experiences. Occasionally, OEHC hosts students outside the Earth History division to broaden the students' perspective on Science.
