About the Club

Our Mission:


The Bay Area Buckeyes connect Ohio State Alumni, family, and friends in the San Francisco Bay Area by creating a social and professional network.  Through this network, we give back to the University and community by offering student recruitment and scholarship programs, providing community service, and promoting The Ohio State University in the San Francisco Bay Area.


What We Do:


The Ohio State Alumni Club of the San Francisco Bay Area is an official chapter of the Ohio state Alumni Association.   The Club sponsors many social events and activities like our wine tours, happy hours, charity projects, and networking socials.  We recruit local students to attend The Ohio State University, and give an annual scholarship to one deserving student.  The most popular aspect of our Alumni Club is the Ohio State football and basketball game watches.  The Buckeye faithful get together at one of our 4 game watch locations to cheer on the football and basketball teams, all while earning money for our Endowment Fund.
