With more than 6,800 community service hours, a cumulative GPA of 3.04 and 85 All-America honors in the 2009-10 year alone, Buckeye Student-Athletes are in a class all by themselves. In order to carry on this tradition of excellence, the Buckeye Club needs to continue to gain new members in order to support our 1,000 student-athletes competing both on the field and in the classroom.

One of the great ways to get involved is by referring others to join the Buckeye Club! By doing this, you are helping our student-athletes fulfill life-long dreams of an Ohio State education, while also earning some remarkable experiences for yourself!

The 2012-13 Referral Program is currently in progress until the new membership deadline of April 30, 2013. Much like the levels of a Buckeye Club membership, the Buckeye Club Referral Program consists of varying benefits to correspond with the amount of referrals generated by each member. Below is a chart that provides the various levels and great rewards.

For example: If Joe Buckeye refers three (3) Big Ten Champions Level Members, he helped the Buckeye Club raise $7,500 (three memberships at $2,500 each). Therefore, Joe will receive a Buckeye Club lapel pin, Ohio Stadium tour and photo on the field, invitation to a men’s basketball practice, invitation to the Athletics suite for men’s ice hockey game, Buckeye Club gear and an invitation to have breakfast with Gene Smith!

In order to be eligible for the Buckeye Club Referral Program, the New Member must provide the current member’s name (as it appears on the account) and ticket number at the time of application. This information must be submitted on the online application, hardcopy application or given if joining over the phone.
