Engaging Minds, Transforming Lives

For Parents

Family Day

We welcome parents to participate in campus activities throughout the year, including public lectures, performances and athletic events. We acknowledge that families visit their students when most convenient or simply when they are missing one another! The University also provides a more formal opportunity for families to visit campus and take part in programming designed for parents once each semester.Spring Family Day 2017Feb. 25 2017

Online registration has closed. If you have not registered, please stop by our Check-in table on Saturday morning in the McCombs Campus Center. We would be happy to assist you there. SING! tickets are available this week outside the Commons during lunch. Your student may pick up one complimentary ticket and purchase additional tickets at that time.


Activities for you and your student to enjoy include:

  • Meet fellow members of a student organization.
