Weekend Activities

Friday, October 10
Meet us at the welcome table, visit classes, enjoy some time on campus, see the Ashley Bryan exhibit in the Blum Gallery, view student exhibits in the Dorr Museum. A welcome reception before dinner is a great time to gather with faculty, trustees, alumni, parents, and students. Dinner is available on campus and evening program follows.

Saturday, October 11
The welcome table continues as a source for information. The morning is filled with options of field trips and workshops. The library hosts their annual book sale through out the day. After lunch on campus, student presentations and a seminar for parents are scheduled, while activities for children are also taking place. Alumni can participate in strategic planning with President Darron Collins and then join him for a social gathering. Alumni from the late 70s are having a reunion. The popular Community Show and Dessert Reception will entertain us that evening.

Sunday, October 12
More trips and tours take place, including boat trips on the Osprey. Coffee and conversation with the President takes place mid-afternoon.
