New Name & Member Recognition

In 2015, members of the Optometry Alumni & Friends approved a membership model that aligns with The Ohio State University Alumni Association, Inc. (OSUAA), thus becoming the Ohio State University College of Optometry Alumni Society. While the name has changed slightly, our group still serves the common interests of Buckeye optometrists all across the world.

All Ohio State optometry alumni can become sustaining members by making a gift of $75 or more annually to the Ohio State Optometry fund of your choice. In doing so, you are becoming a member of BOTH the Ohio State College of Optometry Alumni Society and the Ohio State University Alumni Association. Additionally, your membership status will allow you to become eligible for football tickets, as well as some other OSUAA benefits listed below:


If you have any questions about becoming a member of the Ohio State University College of Optometry Alumni Society or would like to learn more about any specific benefits, please contact our Alumni Coordinator Michael Haddock at 614-688-1363 or
