Your time on campus may have come to a close, but making your voice heard at The Ohio State University has never been so easy. The Buckeye Room – open to all alumni – is an insight community that engages Ohio State graduates across the world who want to provide input on issues and topics that are currently important to the university.
Since its beginning in 2014, almost 10,000 alumni have joined the community to put in their two cents by spending a few minutes each month engaging in a handful of survey questions via computer or mobile phone. Feedback received from Buckeye Room has gleaned insights in a whole host of topics, such as:
- How student loan debt is affecting alumni and how Ohio State can help
- What features should be prioritized in developing an alumni mobile app that aligns with the needs and interests of alumni
- How to improve the Ohio State football ticketing process
- And many more
Feedback community members of Buckeye Room also get special perks and exclusive inside access. By taking part in surveys, members are brought into the loop at the early stages of initiatives and help make a big impact from the start. Results of surveys are even shared in The Buckeye Room member hub, a private page only accessible to community members, so that you never are left wondering what happened with your feedback.
Of course, it’s not all about research in The Buckeye Room. Our members can also get their 15 seconds of fame. Buckeye Room members can be featured in Ohio State Alumni Magazine in the popular “The Ask,” a section that allows Buckeye Room members to pose questions to featured guests, such as head coach Ryan Day, or to share their treasured memories, such as what you did to celebrate your college graduation.
But the fun doesn’t stop there. To say thank you, for every activity completed in Buckeye Room, participants are given one entry into the quarterly $50 sweepstakes. You may even win an autographed football from two-time Heisman Trophy winner, Archie Griffin!
But don’t just take it from us, we asked some of our Buckeye Room members what their favorite part of being a Buckeye Room member is:
“I feel more connected to OSU now than I did for many years. Thank you.”
“I love hearing about what is going on at OSU and reading other people’s experiences. It reminds me why I am so proud to be a Buckeye.”
“I love being able to voice my opinions on all things Ohio State as well as others being able to do the same…”
