Spring always brings a lot of visitors to campus – whether it’s due to the glorious weather, to view clear views on Rainier Vista, or to admire the cherry blossoms that line the Quad. On April 8-10, campus saw an even higher number of guests on campus with the inaugural Parent & Family Weekend. Students took this opportunity to show their families around campus and attend campus events. Activities included a wide range of academic programs, sports events, open houses, a breakfast with campus leaders and administration, and an appearance and discussion from The Boys in the Boat author, Daniel James Brown.

The goal of the weekend was to enhance the sense of community on campus by embracing parents and families as an integral part of the Husky Experience. Parent & Family Weekend was a great success and we can’t wait to see how it grows into the next academic year.
