Service is a key component of the fraternity and sorority experience and a shared value for our OSU community.

Chapters organize hands-on community service opportunities throughout the year and often have a minimum service hours requirement for members. Chapters also raise money and awareness for local and national charities through philanthropic events. These opportunities help the OSU fraternity and sorority community learn the importance of giving back to their wider community.

Planning a service project?

The Service Project Planning Guide outlines the considerations, components, and tasks necessary for planning and leading a successful community service project. CCE recommends you use this guide "buffet-style"-- pick and choose the sections, activities, and tips that best meet your planning and facilitating needs.
