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.
