All events hosted by the AOSA are meant to better connect you with this great profession and are aligned with one of our four pillars: Education, Advocacy, Student Experience, and Tools for Success.

AOSA events range from large-scale national meetings to individual chapter events at each school. We encourage you to get as involved as you can.

AOSA Welcome Program!

Join your fellow optometry students from across the country for the first nationwide AOSA Welcome program!  During this one-hour event, you will learn more about the benefits of the AOSA, the work we are doing on behalf of optometry students, and how to get involved all while competing in a bingo game.  There will be snacks distributed to your school to enjoy during the program, as well as cash prizes and awesome AOSA giveaways!

A special thank you to Allergan for their support of the first AOSA Welcome program.
