Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

Graduate Student Life Internships

Calling Masters and Ph.D. Students in Higher Education and Student Affairs Programs in Ohio

Are you interested in enhancing your academic program through internship and practical experience? Are you looking to experience what working in Student Affairs is like at one of the nation’s largest flagship and Research 1 Universities? Then an internship in the Office of Student Life at the Ohio State University (OSU) may just be the opportunity for which you have been looking!

The Office of Student Life is dedicated to one purpose: creating the extraordinary student experience. However, the ways in which each person seeks to accomplish this goal is unique depending on where they are located within our office. Work in the Office of the Vice President for Student Life looks different from work in Recreational Sports, the Student Wellness Center, the Multicultural Center, the Ohio Union, or the Center for the Study of Student Life and yet all of these units (plus many more) add a vital facet to supporting and developing students in their out of classroom pursuits.

We want to invite you to take part in our mission so that you can learn the tools of the trade that you need to be the most successful and effective Student Affairs professional that you can be. An internship with the Office of Student Life at The Ohio State University not only means great experience, it also means getting to meet and network with professionals in the field.

Still interested? Then email us at to ask for more information. We’ll get back with you to let you know what opportunities we have available, get you application materials, and connect you with professionals who are working in the areas of Student Affairs you hope to enter.

If you are a student at The Ohio State University looking for a practicum or internship in the Office of Student Life and have not already been in contact or set something up with an individual department, email us and we will work to help find you an internship.

We are excited to be offering internships in the Office of Student Life and hope that you are as well. We cannot wait to hear from you!
