Information found on this website is meant to be helpful and guide you in supporting your student and their success. We believe the more informed you are about OSU, the better resources you can be for your students. New Student Programs & Family Outreach serves as a primary liaison between parents and family members and the university. We offer some programs and resources and can also help refer to you a more appropriate resource if needed.
