Family February 2021

This February, we are excited to offer a full month of events dedicated to families. Without the ability to do an in-person Family Weekend, we are offering all the typical programming for families to enjoy and learn more about their student’s upcoming experiences in a virtual format.

We have split the programming into weekly Saturday webinars throughout February for the larger topics, as well as mid-week events focused on some of the smaller topics and group discussions.

Saturday Series (10 a.m. Saturdays, all webinar style virtual events):

February 6
Academic Overview
Featuring the associate dean for academic affairs and associate dean for academic resources and student success discussing staying on track, declaring a major, the writing center, and academic excellence.

February 13
Career Services and Summer Research
Featuring the director of career services and a faculty member discussing summer opportunities, internships and research. This event is for all families.

February 20
Student Leaders and Campus Activities
Featuring members of residential life and campus life, DSA Muchachos, mentors and proctors discussing ongoing engagement and programming to keep students connected.

February 27
What’s on Your Mind?: Parent-to-Parent Insights
