Every fall, parents and families visit campus to get a firsthand look at the people, programs and places that have become home to their students.
When you arrive on campus, please go to our Welcome Center, located in Gerhard Fieldhouse, to check in and receive your lanyard/name tag, schedule booklet and complimentary gift.
Pro Tip: Check in is much easier if you pre-register online by Sept. 14.
