family Weekend: Parents Experience Campus Life

By Aurora Ortiz

On Friday, Oct. 21, the Annual Fall Family Weekend commenced. Preparations for this anticipated event began weeks prior. Freshly mowed lawns, new Wilson College banners and a brand new main entrance welcomed families when they arrived on campus.

Family registration began at 8 a.m. in Lenfest Commons. Relatives accompanied students to classes where students were able to show their family members their experiences at Wilson. Outside of classes, students could take their families to the college store to collect some memorabilia or perhaps have a meal with them in the Jensen Dining Hall.

On Friday, students, their families, faculty and staff joined President Barbara Mistick for the ribbon cutting of the new main entrance. The day concluded with the Annual Scholarship Donor Dinner.

On Saturday, students and their families attended meetings and information about the FAFSA, life after college, and opportunities abroad.

On Sunday, students had one last day to show family members around before the conclusion of this year’s Family Weekend. The day began with a special chapel service led by Chaplain Emily Morgan. The weekend concluded with a Field Hockey game. Family Weekend may have ended, but the warm family environment remains at Wilson.
