One of the great things about Ohio University is the amount of organizations there are here on campus. With over 500 different ones to choose from its no wonder there are a few that we haven’t heard much about. Here are some that even though you may not know about them, you defintely should.
1. A stitch in Athens is a knitting/crochet/quilting club that allows you to work on individual projects which are then sold throughout the year and the proceeds are donated to a local nonprofit chosen by the group. They welcome all members even if you have no idea how to knit, they’ll teach you! A stitch in Athens meets Monday nights at 7:30 at the 1804 Lounge in Baker.
2. Ohio University Extra Life is a relatively new organization here on campus that allows you to play video games while also giving back. By playing games the national organization raises money for the Miracle Children’s Network Hospitals. Our particular chapter here at OU raises money for Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus
3. 4 Paws for ability Ohio University is an organization that places mobility, hearing, seizure, autism, and emotional assistance dogs with children and adults with disabilities. Here at OU students are given the opportunity to foster and/or handle a service dog in training. Students fostering help socialize the service dog in training, educate the public about service dogs, and help fundraise for children in need of service dogs.
