Bring Your Kids to Campus Day- June 3, 2022

Register Today!

We are so excited to be bringing back our annual Bring Your Kids to Campus Day for its 10th anniversary! The day is designed to help promote the value of a college education as well as share with our children the fun and exciting place where we are fortunate to work, study, research, and teach. This year's schedule is scaled down but includes many of the fan favorites from previous years and we will be ending the day with a family BBQ!
