Alumnae Scholarship Housing Program Residence Life The Alumnae Scholarship Housing (ASH) program has offered a unique, cooperative-living and low-cost housing option for undergraduate women at The Ohio State University for 80 years. ASH aims to connect students with a variety of resources on campus to further grow and develop academically and personally. Additionally, ASH participants engage in regular community-driven opportunities, including dinner crew, house chores and a variety of traditional events, which drive a cooperative spirit throughout a woman's ASH experience. ASH participants also have the opportunity to engage with the alumnae through the ASH Society. The program consists of 49 women and is housed in Fechko, Hanley and Pomerene houses. housing.osu.edu/learningcommunities/alumnae-scholarship-housing/

Sorority and Fraternity Life Leadership Sorority and Fraternity Life Through these various opportunities we help our campus community better understand the importance of having support systems for women within the Sorority and Fraternity community.

Sorority and Fraternity Life Governing Councils Sorority and Fraternity Life Within the Sorority and Fraternity Life community, women have an opportunity to not only join a student organization (sororities) that offer them a large support system both nationally and internationally, but they also join a governing council. Three of our four governing councils have women as members and these councils do a great deal of programming and education about topics that directly relate to women's development. The Multicultural Greek Council, National Pan-Hellenic Council and the Panhellenic Association throughout the year are charged to survey the national trends and create meaningful programs to offer a voice to the underrepresented within their communities. ohiounion.osu.edu/get_involved/sorority_fraternity/chapters
Sorority and Fraternity Life Standards of Excellence Diversity Programming Sorority and Fraternity Life In the area of Diversity we encourage our students to engage in conversations about diverse populations.

Women's Circles Residence Life Women’s Circles are small groups of women who connect and engage in meaningful dialogue about relationships, identity, and wellness. In these safe, brave spaces women reflect on their experiences and find support in one another. Through facilitated discussion, reflection, and sharing, women find a strong sense of community, enhanced self-confidence, and refine critical-thinking skills. These circles will begin in February 2016 and will last for approximately eight weeks with the same small groups of women. During this time, each circle will meet for one to two hours each week. For more information about the goals, purpose, and structure of this initiative, visit the website above. If you’re interested in participating in a Women’s Circle within the residence halls during the 2015-16 academic year, please contact Kara Zarnoch at zarnoch.4@osu.edu. onecirclefoundation.org/WC.aspx
