Ohio State Welcome Leader (OWL)

Ohio State Welcome Leader (OWL)

Are you interested in being part of the excitement of Move-In, August 2021?  If so, you may want to consider becoming an OWL! Every year we recruit students to serve their fellow Buckeyes and build community.We encourage you to submit an application to serve as an OWL! The OWL program is a great way for students to become part of the OSU Family and get a jump start into Autumn Semester!

What Are OWLs and What Do They Do? 

OWL stands for Ohio State Welcome Leader and OWLs participate in a program that strives to provide a developmental and enriching early engagement experience through student connection, service to others, and embodying tradition and school spirit. At this time, the OWL program will be a hybrid of virtual and in-person aspects. More details will be shared on the OWL website as soon as possible.

We place OWLs where we need them on Move-In Day, which may mean that OWLs serve in buildings other than where they live and they may be asked to switch where they work throughout the day. We ask that our volunteers are flexible and patient when these changes happen.

Learn more on the OWL Program on the Involved Living website.



Interested in being an OWL? Apply by 11:59 p.m. on June 30.
