A letter from the Parents Advancement Council co-chairs

Welcome Buckeye Families

It’s hard to believe that another school year has started. Soon the children we once dropped off at bus stops or walked to school will graduate into the professional world. In that bittersweet moment, we as parents will be unable to contain our pride. Fortunately, there is still time for you to take an active role in maximizing the college experience of your Buckeye.

The Parents Advancement Council brings together parents, faculty, staff and university leadership in a supportive community for our students. Their lives will be enriched by your generosity of time and energy, as well as your commitment to the Parents Support Fund, which directly benefits our Buckeyes. As our children near the end of their college careers, our roles as parents will continue to evolve, but our ability to positively impact their lives will endure.

We hope you will accept this unique opportunity and join us on the Parents Advancement Council. Together we can make our children’s years at Ohio State truly unforgettable.

We are here to help, so please let us know if you have any questions. Hopefully we will see you on campus soon!

Betsey and Steve Eastwood
Chairs, Parents Advancement Council
