Buckeye Leadership Fellows Program

Buckeye Connections

The Office of Student Life's Buckeye Leadership Fellows Program and Student Activities has partnered to offer an experience centered in belonging, relationships and building a Buckeye Network. 

Students will be offered the opportunity to learn techniques and tips to engage with personal and professional connections to build a dynamic network. The program will include development sessions and panels, opportunities for coffee dates, faculty and staff outreach and participation in a virtual networking session with university alumni, community leaders and faculty and staff. Space is available for students who are looking for ways to build their skills and get connected. Development sessions are offered every Thursday from 5:15pm-6:15pm in preparation for experiential networking challenges. Building Your Buckeye Network will run from Thursday, February 18th - Thursday, March 25th.
