    Introduction: Organ donation is giving an organ to help someone who needs a transplant. The kidneys, heart, liver, lungs, pancreas, and small bowel can all be transplanted. Transplants are one of the biggest achievements of modern medicine and can save or greatly enhance the lives of other people. However, they depend completely on donors and their families consenting to organ or tissue donation. One donor can save the life of several people, restore the sight of two others, and improve the quality of life of many more. Aim: The aim of this study was to estimate the knowledge toward organ donation among college students. Materials and Methods: An online questionnaire was prepared and circulated among the students of Saveetha Dental College. The data were collected and statistically analyzed. The survey was conducted among 100 students. Results: Most of the students are aware of organ donation and are also willing to donate. More cultural enrichment regarding organ donation will definitely change the attitude of people regarding organ donation. Conclusion: There are many students who are willing to donate organs, but they are not aware regarding the steps involved in it. Hence, more campaigns regarding organ donation must be done to create more awareness among people as this is one of the most active potential treatments in today’s world.
