Parent & Family Weekend

Parent and Family Weekend October 6-8, 2017

Family Weekend Package Details (Pricing & Activities)

October 6th

Day one (October 6th) is unplanned. Students will often show their families around campus highlighting the places they spend most of their time. For dinner, families may enjoy a dinner in the dining hall with their student, but many will choose to threat their student (and perhaps their student's roommate(s)) to a dinner off-campus at University Village Colorado. Following dinner off-campus, families may choose to come back to campus to enjoy an event (TBD) sponsored by our Office of Student Activities.

October 7th

Day two (October 7th) consists of a planned, on campus experience for families and their students to enjoy some quality time together at UCCS. Activites* include, but are not limited to sunrise yoga, Mother-Daughter self-defense courses, a campus lecture, hsitoric walking tours, nutrition demontrations, fitness classes, live entertainment, log rolling, and kayaking.

*Access to activities is based upon Parent and Family Weekend package purchased. Three packages available.

October 8th

Day three (October 8th) is unplanned so that you may spend the day in whatever way you wish - perhaps while exploring Colorado Springs, taking your student shopping to stock up on supplies, or enjoying a UCCS Women's or Men's Soccer game.
