Family Webinars

We have created several virtual webinars for the parents, guardians, and family members of new students to ensure they are just as prepared for the start of your Buckeye journey as you will be.

We hope these webinars, paired with the information you have received throughout orientation, will outline what to expect for academics, wellness, the student experience, involvement, diversity and inclusion and provide your family with information about supporting your success.

The webinars will be offered at various times and dates throughout the months of June, July, and August. Below, you will see these opportunities outlined.

Please go here to register for session times and dates that you and your family are interested in. You will receive an email immediately after hitting submit on the registration form with the zoom links to access the webinars you selected.
