Parent and Family Programs

It Takes a Village to Build the Dam

You’re a proud parent / family member. And we’re a proud community of Beavers who are just as invested as you in your student’s growth and success at OSU! 

The Parent and Family Engagement Program is designed to bridge the transition from family to college life by keeping parents and families informed and engaged alongside students throughout their OSU journey. We encourage you to be a vital partner in this process! That’s why we will be sharing meaningful communications, tips and ongoing opportunities to help you support and empower your student as they find their footing on campus and thrive as part of the Beaver community. 

Let’s Build the Dam Together. Welcome to OSU’s Parent and Family Engagement Program!

Stay Connected with your student and OSU! Consider this page your one-stop-shop for the latest communications, updates about campus life and happenings, student health and safety, helpful resources, alumni achievements and much more.  

Get Involved by volunteering (virtually or in-person!) alongside other OSU parents for committees and events that bring Beavers and their families together to interact and build strong connections that support students and OSU. 

Be an Active Participant in your student’s success! Communicate. Advocate. Network. Volunteer. Donate...  and encourage fellow OSU families to do the same! We all play a vital role in our students’ ability to live, learn and thrive at OSU. Your involvement helps Build the Dam for your student and others Beavers who follow.
