Parent and Family Relations

Programs & Activities / Parent & Family Weekend


Ohio State views student success as a true partnership between the university, students and their families.  With a student at Ohio State, parents, families and supports are members of our Buckeye Family.  Each year we invite our families to campus during Parent and Family Weekend to experience life as a Buckeye.  Family Weekend offers a snapshot into the life of our students, highlights academic and extracurricular resources and events, athletic competitions, student performances, special campus tours and other events that highlight the traditions of Ohio State and the life of your student.  
Parent and Family Weekend 2021 will be hosted October 22 and 23 on the Columbus campus. It should be noted that Family Weekend is an away football game (and has been for many years).  We look forward to seeing you, either in person or virtually for Parent and Family Weekend 2021.
