Parent & Family Weekend

Parent and Family Weekend October 5-7, 2018


Nestled right in between the time freshmen are dropped off at the beginning of the semester and when they come home for the holidays, Parent and Family Weekend 2018 is the perfect reason to visit UCCS to spend time with your first-year student.

Please keep in mind that space is limited. Register right away before wristbands sell out.

Package Details (Pricing and Activities)

October 5th

Day one (October 5th) 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 treat their student (and perhaps their student's roommate(s)) to a dinner off-campus at University Village Colorado.

October 6th

Day two (October 6th) consists of a planned, on campus experience for families and their students to enjoy some quality time together at UCCS. Activities* include, but are not limited to Mother-Daughter self-defense course, coffee and donuts with the Excel Centers, a campus lecture, massage/chiropractic demos, historic walking tour of campus, painting class, caricaturist, and live entertainment.

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

October 7th

Day three (October 7th) is unplanned so that you may spend the day in whatever way you wish - perhaps while exploring Colorado Springs or taking your student shopping to stock up on supplies.
