Welcome to Bucket & Dipper

Bucket & Dipper (B&D), the second oldest honorary on campus (and in our opinion, the coolest and most fun as well), recognizes outstanding members of the junior class based on the three pillars of the honorary system: scholarship, leadership, and service. Originally an all male honorary, B&D is currently a group of thirty outstanding male and female undergraduates. The organization has a long history of giving back to Ohio State and developing some of the best student leaders on campus.


Bucket & Dipper is active in many areas throughout the university. B&D is a member of the Association of Ohio State Class Honoraries (AOSCH), the self-governing body of the class honorary community at Ohio State. The most notable event, however, is the Illibuck pass, a football tradition dating back to 1925. In addition, B&D members regularly perform community service around the Columbus area. Service projects for the 107th Class will be discussed and executed in the following Autumn 2014 term. Its members also meet often for social events and participate in activities with the other honoraries.
