  3. Hazing Prevention Training - VIRTUAL

    This is an important moment in our state’s and university’s commitment to eradicating any form of hazing in educational institutions across Ohio. Collin’s Law, Ohio’s Anti Hazing Act, which went into effect at the beginning of October enacted a number of important requirements and changes, all to end hazing and interrupt contributing factors that have enabled the persistence of hazing in the past.

    Hazing Prevention Training for Students 

    A component of the law is required education for all students before they join a student group. As we continue to promote a culture of care this is an important step in preventing hazing. There will be multiple hazing prevention trainings open to all students to fulfill this requirement before joining a student group. This training will cover definitions of hazing, awareness, prevention, intervention, and reporting. This training is open to all students and is strongly recommended even if they are already part of a group.  



    Tues., Jan. 25th | 7 pm |Virtual

    Tues., Feb. 8th | 7 pm | Virtual

    Thurs., Feb. 24 | 7 pm | Virtual


    Contact holava.1 if your organization would like to set-up a training for your next meeting!




    To create a community free of hazing, we must first report hazing when we experience it, see it or suspect it. It is imperative that everyone with knowledge of hazing reports it. Ohio State students and registered student organizations are required to report hazing as the failure to prevent, intervene or report acts of hazing may also be considered acts of hazing.  

    You may have additional reporting obligations under Ohio law. Specifically, Collin's Law: The Ohio Anti-Hazing Act Sec. 2903.311 (B). 

    If you are a university employee and have questions about your reporting obligations under Ohio law, please contact the Office of Legal Affairs at 614-292-0611.  

    If you are a student and have questions about your reporting obligations under Ohio law, please contact Student Legal Services at 614-247-5853. 

    Go to go.osu.edu/reporthazing for information and instructions on how to report hazing to the university and to law enforcement.  

    • If anyone is experiencing harm or is in imminent danger, please call 9-1-1. 
    • For on-campus reports, call OSUPD at 614-292-2121.  
    • To report off-campus behavior call Wooster police at 330-287-5702 (non-emergency number)   


    Contact Us 

    Please contact our student org team at csls@osu.edu with any questions about these resources or preventing hazing in your organization.

  10. Join the 2022 Ohio State ATI Intercollegiate Dairy Cattle Judging Team!

    Ohio State ATI Students:

     I’m looking for students interested in being part of the 2022 Ohio State ATI Intercollegiate Dairy Cattle Judging team.  I need to determine interest now so we can begin practicing during spring semester.  At least 3 students, preferably 4, are needed for a team.  Any Ohio State ATI student, not just dairy students, can be part of the Dairy Cattle Judging team.  Students must be full-time students in “good standing” to be part of the team.  Hopefully, COVID conditions will allow a judging team in 2022. 

    A group of people posing for a photoDescription automatically generatedThis year, the potential contests are Eastern States Exposition (Massachusetts in September), Pennsylvania All-American (Pennsylvania in September), World Dairy Expo (Wisconsin in late September – early October), and the North American International Livestock Exposition (Kentucky in November).  Ohio State ATI competes in the 2-year college/university division at these contests.   Each contest is different, but typically students will need to judge placing classes and give oral reasons at each contest.  At World Dairy Expo, there is a practical contest that includes linear scoring, registered heifers, commercial heifers, and mating recommendation classes.


    Please reply to me by sending an email to thornton.5@osu.edu to let me know if you are interested in participating with the 2022 Ohio State ATI Intercollegiate Dairy Cattle Judging team.  Please include in your email your contact information:  preferred email, phone number (cell and/or home), and address.  If there is enough interest (at least 3 students), a meeting will be scheduled to discuss the specifics:  time commitment, funding, practices, etc.   

    PLEASE REPLY BY Friday, January 21, 2022 to allow time to schedule the organizational meeting.


    Mr. Thornton
