Office of Student Life : Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

Student Affairs

Role and Mission

The Student Affairs committee strives to advance the Student Quality of Life at The Ohio State University. We have identified four factors as a benchmark for improvement: Affordability, Accountability, Accessibility, and Advance-ability. We aim to consider these factors as we undertake projects to better the existing features of Student Life, and target and fulfill the need for additional resources and opportunities.
