Each Fall we invite our Titan families to our beautiful campus to experience campus life from your student’s perspective. This year, we can’t be together due to health and safety concerns related to COVID, but this won’t stop us from spending time together! We have many interesting and diverse events and activities for you to enjoy!
Many of our wonderful 2020 Homecoming events are the same or similar to what we would have planned for you virtually, so we are incorporating these into our parent programming to present Family Days for you rather than just one day. In addition, Parent Engagement has a special time for you to chat with President Richardson and to have some good old-fashioned fun with your Titan. We invite you to participate in as much as you can, and we hope you learn a little about your Titan’s home away from home and why it is so special!
Expand your knowledge in one of many areas while you ‘audit’ one of our current courses. Options range from joining as a guest in a virtual, live session to viewing pre-recorded current lessons from faculty. Be sure to register to receive the links to the lessons and sessions.View Schedule
