Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

LGBTQ Student and Family Reception


Time: Friday, October 04, 2013 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Location: Multicultural Center

Admission: Free

As a parent or caregiver, you want your student to succeed in college, but how can you help? If your student also happens to identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, you may have additional questions and concerns about Ohio State--their new home away from home.

You may be wondering:

  • What is campus like for them?
  • What resources are available for LGBTQ students?
  • Are gay students safe on campus and in Columbus?

You may even be looking for more information about sexual orientation and gender identity as you seek to better understand and support your student as they transition into adulthood.

Part of the college experience is learning to be independent and self-reliant, but you can still help your student as they grow toward an understanding of themselves, and greater independence.

Stop by the Student Life Multicultural Center from 5-7 pm on Friday, October 4 for an opportunity to meet and talk with other family members, and learn more about what programs and services are available for LGBTQ students. Light refreshments will be provided, as well as fun OSU swag.

Kick off your Parent & Family Weekend by building your Buckeye pride and strengthening your connection to the University and your student!
