Regional Networks

Regional networks

Connecting passionate OSU alumni, the OSU Alumni Association brings Beavers together all over the globe. Regional volunteer networks create opportunities for alumni to connect, meet new people, develop professional relationships and bond over their love for OSU.  


Volunteer leaders host events either in person or virtually where Beavers are invited to get together with peers in their local area. Find new ways to engage with Beaver Nation, wherever you are.
