Mount Union College to Hold "Parents' Day"

April 22, 2010

Mount Union College is holding Parents' Day on Saturday, November 8. The annual event allows parents to experience "college for a day."

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. in the Dewald Chapel. Coffee and other refreshments will be provided, and parents will have an opportunity to meet with members of the faculty and staff.

The activities begin at 9:15 a.m. in the Chapel with "Parents 100" sessions, educational presentations modeled after LS 100, the first-year experience class in which all Mount Union students must enroll. Dr. Annette Cryder, director of counseling services, will present "Navigating a Sea of Change," a group discussion on how families change when children go to college and information on how to approach reunions on weekends and breaks.

At 10 a.m., Tiffani King, assistant director of the Academic Support Center, will present "The Finals Countdown," a discussion of what students need to accomplish before the final exam period begins and what role parents can play in helping students stay focused academically through their final exams.

At 11:30 a.m., parents and students can attend the pre-game brunch and Tailgate Party in the Kresge Dining Hall, located in the Hoover-Price Campus Center.

The annual Legacy Luncheon will also be held at 11:30 a.m. in the Campus Grounds. The luncheon, which is hosted by the Alumni Association, is for Mount Union alumni and their children who are current students.

At 1:30 p.m., the Mount Union College Purple Raiders will be playing Ohio Northern at Mount Union Stadium. After the game, there will be a post-game reception in the Campus Grounds, sponsored by the Office of Alumni Activities.
