Parents Weekend September 30 to October 2

From the 2011 Parent Orientation Newsletter

Parents Weekend is the perfect chance to reconnect with your student, learn more about campus programs and services, see the University through your student’s experience, and explore the larger Twin Cities community with your son or daughter.

This year’s schedule is designed to help you and your student make new memories together. Friday will focus on the college, Saturday is devoted to campus life, and Sunday is dedicated to the community.

Whatever your interests, there is sure to be something to appeal to you and your student. Artist? Catch a show or tour one of the art galleries on campus. Sports fan? Watch a live broadcast of the Gopher football team as they play the University of Michigan Wolverines. Explorer? Discover secret spots on campus during the parent-student scavenger hunt. Scholar? Learn about the great extracurricular opportunities available to students, such as studying abroad and independent research.

We hope you will join us Sept. 30–Oct. 2 for an exciting weekend of celebration and reunion. Watch for details and registration materials in emails sent through the Parent listserv, your mailbox, and on the University Parent website.
