Office of Student Life: Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience


What does CARE Stand for?

CARE stands for Cultural Ambassadors for Resident Life Enrichment.


Who can join CARE?

CARE is open to all undergraduate students at The Ohio State University! Past members have come from all over the world, from Columbus natives to international students from China and Morocco!


What does CARE do?

CARE is a student-lead organization that seeks to bring international and domestic students together through team-building exercises, planning on-campus cultural events, and information sessions where members learn about OSU resources and services. 


What can CARE members expect?

CARE members can expect once-a-month General Assembly meetings where they learn about OSU resources, student organizations, and are assisted in polishing employable skills, such as interview skills and resume editing. Once-a-month newsletters detailing upcoming events and member highlights on the CARE website are also an important part of CARE.


What types of events does CARE host?

We host a wide variety of events, from International Desert Night to Karaoke with CARE. All of our events focus on learning about foreign cultures and international affairs, but CARE members put their own spin on this criteria.


How much does it cost to be a CARE member?

Being a CARE member is FREE! Our organization is subsidized by The Ohio State University’s Office of Residence Life, which gives us the freedom to give CARE members amazing opportunities and put on fun events without asking for a fee.


How can I keep in touch with CARE?

CARE has an instagram page where we post about upcoming CARE events as well as events hosted by other Office of Residence Life organizations. Check us out! @care.osu
