Family Program

FAMILY WEEKEND 2013
Friday, October 18 & Saturday, October 19

We will again combine Homecoming and Family Weekend as this is a great opportunity to take advantage of campus activities while you spend time with your students.

Students, parents, and administrators enjoy the gorgeous Colorado weather!

Families are invited to visit their students and experience the campus in full swing when the golden aspen trees are at their best.  

Our schedule is typically informal as we have found our students want time with you to catch up on family news and to introduce you to their friends.  However, we are bringing back the "Family Weekend Hike" on Saturday, and many Faculty have offered "Open Classrooms" for you to visit on Friday as well. Click here for a listing of those courses, times and locations.
