Parents & Families

Don't feel like you need to get out of the way after move-in!  Saturday is full of events for families.  Starting at 3pm until 9pm  we have a number of activities planned for Families!  There is a chance to meet your student's faculty advisor, hear welcomes from the President and your student's Dean, and then attend our annual, free Welcome Picnic!  After the picnic we have Mass and other religious services followed by the annual "Sundaes on Saturday" dessert event!  Families are encouraged to participate in all activities on Saturday and then may depart on Sunday.
