Parents and Families Weekend

parents and families servicesJust a friendly notice to everyone on campus the next three days: Mom and Dad are coming over, so let’s try to be on our best behavior.

Beginning Friday, the Office of Parents and Families Services will host its annual Parents and Families Weekend. Sandwiched between Saturday’s football game at Carter-Finley Stadium will be family-friendly events all over campus, including a welcome reception, the popular Chocolate Festival at the Women’s Center, a pregame food truck rodeo in the stadium parking lots and the annual family service project.

A packed three days of activities are planned this year (full schedule of events). Activities begin Friday afternoon with light hors d’oeuvres at the Joyner Visitors Center and a trip to paint the Free Expression Tunnel.

On Saturday, students, parents and families are welcome to attend the pregame tailgate in Hospitality Areas 12-17, prior to the 6 p.m. kickoff against Eastern Kentucky.
