The office of New Student Programs & Family Outreach understands that transitioning a student to life at college can be a time of change for both parents and family and students. By providing information on relevant resources and campus news, it is our hope parents and family members will feel more connected to the OSU community and knowledgeable about what their student is experiencing.

We offer a e-newsletter for both first year and transfer families as a free resource for parents and family members of first-year students at Oregon State University. Subscribers will receive a e-newsletter with timely information on campus resources, upcoming events, and helpful transition tips to assist parents and family members as they support their student(s) in the pursuit of academic and personal goals.  

Each newsletter will feature stories on campus academic and co-curricular resources as well as spotlight helpful tips from campus staff and current students.
