Our Student Programs and Services

Buck-I-EAT. The Buck-I-Eat program was inspired by members of the CFFA service committee with a two-fold mission: 1.) to ensure that no buckeye goes hungry, and 2.) to promote healthy eating patterns. All students are eligible to participate (no application or appointment) at the self-service food pantry located at Student Success Services. The Buck-I-Eat food pantry is maintained by generous donations from employees and students of non-perishable food and personal hygiene items as well as monetary donations to the Buck-I-EAT development fund (315953). For more information contact Ruth Montz at

CARE Team. The CARE Team is here to help students! We are a community who cares about all its members. We are all encouraged to identify student who may be in need of additional support or services. Notifying the CARE Team is one of the ways to support our students who may be experiencing a personal challenge. The CARE Team can respond to concerns and offer assistance to students. For emergencies call 911.

Career Closet. The Career Closet was inspired by members of the CFFA service community and is held in conjunction with campus-wide professional development events such as Dress for Success, Career Expo, and Night for Young Professionals. Donations of gently used business clothing can be made at Student Success Services, 128 Skou Hall. For more information contact Ruth Montz at

VCA program. Over 2,000 military veterans and their family members are enrolled at Ohio State using their GI Bill education benefits as graduate and undergraduate students, but going from military life to student life can be a significant change. Many veterans face challenges that are far different from most traditional students. Through the Veteran Community Advocate (VCA) Program, many of Ohio State’s top veteran students are continuing their service to the university and their fellow veterans on campus. The VCA Program is a vital part of the effort to help connect fellow veterans to resources and experiences that will ensure our veteran students accomplish their new mission - academic and professional success. If you are interested in serving in a Community Advocate position, please contact the Office of Military and Veterans Services at 614-247-VETS.
