Family Weekend Conference

12:00pm to 3:00pm

The UA Parents & Family Association is sponsoring a FREE conference just for you!  After you have picked up your registration materials for Family Weekend, we invite you to join us at the Student Union Memorial Center from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm. A complete schedule of the times, room locations and session descriptions will be available at the Registration Tent.  

The conference will offer a variety of sessions designed to help you explore an assortment of campus resources available to you and your student.  Conference presentations will include information on things such as, leadership and volunteer programs, student academic support resources offered by the Think Tank, an opportunity to learn about UA history and traditions, and a current parent panel discussion.  Families will also be able to gather additional resources, meet some of our Parent & Family Association Board members, and staff who will be available to answer any questions.  

This is a great opportunity to network amongst families who are proud to be part of the Wildcat Family!
