Experiential Learning and Activities (ELA) is the hub of student organizations, media and creative expression. Our mission is to provide resources, advising and media platforms that help students of all identities create activities, share stories, build community and celebrate passions, cultures and lived experiences.
As you travel on your journey through college to discover yourself, find your community and determine your role and impact in this world, we want to support you. We believe that all students at OSU should be able to find belonging and creatively express themselves - their thoughts, emotions and beliefs.
Our programs are designed to provide you different ways to express yourself. Join any of our 400+ clubs or student organization on campus. Create media (e.g., host a podcast, create a tv show, DJ a radio show, write articles for our publications, shoot photos, design layouts). Attend our events.
How you express yourself is up to you. We provide you with the resources, mentorship and media platforms to help you. We are Experiential Learning and Activities. We are ELA.
