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 2022, for the first time in many years, is being planned on a home football game.  More details, including the weekend schedule and ticket information will be shared this summer, but mark your calendars for the weekend of September 17 for Parent and Family Weekend 2022!  Generally, there is some programming on Friday evening, programming during the day on Saturday (pending game time) and some programming Sunday morning.  We will update this page once we have additional details.
