Mission Statement

  • The Office of Student Life at The Ohio State University at Marion will provide programs and services to support and enhance the commuter student experience.
  • The Office of Student Life will foster the development of students by promoting campus engagement and facilitating a supportive environment for growth and development.
  • The Office of Student Life will advocate on behalf of students and strive to promote awareness and resolution to the challenges and issues facing our regional campus students.

Our programs and services foster student learning and development, enhance the educational experience, and prepare students for their chosen professions and to be contributing members of a diverse global society. Our offerings are backed by research and supported by data so that we can respond to and anticipate evolving student needs.

The Student Life staff is well-trained, and our initiatives are designed to help students transition into and through college and prepare them for a lifetime of learning and contribution. We provide opportunities that complement and enhance the academic curricula and help students overcome obstacles. We operate many of the programs and services of daily life, including on- and off-campus housing, dining, recreation, diversity, inclusion, and equity, student involvement and engagement, health care, counseling, career development, and multiple opportunities to develop leadership and citizenship skills and experiences.
