Dear Parents, Family Members, and Friends:
On behalf of the entire University, welcome to the Ohio State family! I am delighted that you and your students have chosen The Ohio State University. A strong partnership between the University and our students’ family members enhances and strengthens opportunities, giving all of our students the knowledge they need to succeed both in the classroom and beyond campus.
As your sons and daughters continue to grow and flourish, your support and encouragement will be essential to their success. I know firsthand the joys and challenges of parenting two sons through their college years. That is why I welcome and encourage your involvement in their Ohio State experience. The University's Parent and Family Relations department will work to support you. Through programs, communications, and other resources, Parent and Family Relations is your connection to the University.
Ohio State has never been stronger. Our faculty are superb teachers and mentors, and accomplished scholars and researchers. Our academic programs are among the most highly regarded in the country. And nothing compares with my pride in our great students as they fulfill their promise and potential at Ohio State. Again, my most heartfelt welcome to our University family.
