Parent and Family Relations

About PFR / Mission Statement


The decision on which college or university a student should attend is never easy for a family. Students and families must weigh factors like available academic disciplines, affordability, location, and extracurricular activities, just to name a few, before deciding the best fit for the next four years of a student's life. We appreciate your decision in having your student attend Ohio State.
Parent and Family Relations is committed to engaging parents and families as key stakeholders in The Ohio State University through enhanced communications, involvement in programming, and through leadership and support of fundraising initiatives. We serve as a one-stop shop for support, information, and assistance in problem solving for parents, families, and students. We consider parents and families to be essential to not only the success of your student but also the success of our university as a whole. We believe that through strong partnerships with families, Ohio State can serve as a conduit for a student's future success. We welcome you and your student to our Buckeye family!
