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.

Also, make sure to join us for our Inside Mudd for Families session on February 4, 1 – 2 p.m. PST.

NOTE: This schedule is tentative and subject to change. We are still in the process of confirming speakers/dates.  Please check back regularly, and watch your emails for programming updates.
