The first (annual) Junior & Senior Parents Weekend was 1-3 November 2019. There was food, there was a soccer game, there were Q & A’s with the President and School Deans, there was a social flavor to the whole event. A new and old initiative by the office of Alumni & Parent Relations. In fact, celebrations sharing the campus and the students’ campus experience go way-back. Junior Parents’ Weekend became an institution running 25 years, from 1994 until expanding in 2019-20 into two separate events; Junior & Senior Family Weekend in November, First-Year & Sophomore Family Weekend in February.
The University Museum was invited, setting up at the Beauchamp Recreation & Wellness Center for the Welcome Social. Over 1,000 in attendance throughout the weekend – mixing, mingling, proud as Pilots.
