Family Day 2021 - Saturday, September 18

Save the date, Family Day 2021 is scheduled for Saturday, September 18, 2021!

The student organization Residence Hall Association and Campus Activities and Student Engagement sponsor Family Day each year, giving you the opportunity to explore and enjoy the campus the way your student gets to every day! Family Day is a chance for families to see what their student does on a daily basis and participate in fun activities with them. You'll enjoy a variety of in-hall events throughout the day, as well as events across campus and in the community!
