About FROS

FIRST® Alumni & Robotics at Ohio State (FROS) is an active student organization, founded in 1996, focused on supporting FIRST teams and events locally and throughout the state of Ohio. Our mission is to gain recognition within our university as well as the Central Ohio region through mentorship, community service, and outreach on a local and national scale. We provide mentorship to local teams of all levels, host and volunteer at official and off-season events, and participate in building a robot in three days. Many of our members are alumni in FIRST programs, but we are open to any student, staff, or faculty member who is interested in FIRST.
