The People. The Tradition. The Excellence. We are dedicated to the people we serve whether student-athletes, staff or guests. We will represent the University and its proud heritage with our commitment to achieving excellence in all we do.
The Ohio State University Department of Athletics is one of the most visible, respected and accomplished programs in the nation. A successful athletics program serves as a rallying point for the entire university community and enhances national exposure while deepening campus pride. This exposure can help attract the best and brightest to our campus.
A robust athletics program also prepares student-athletes to be engaged citizens and leaders in their communities. Research shows that former student-athletes are more likely to be civically involved, satisfied in their careers and driven to set and achieve goals. By maintaining a well-resourced and competitive athletics program, the university is helping prepare the next generation of community leaders.
Nationally recognized as one of the most comprehensive in all of college athletics, the Ohio State Department of Athletics offers 36 intercollegiate sports.
