2017 Parent Weekend

On Friday, Oct. 27 you can catch a glimpse into your student's life at Simpson. Meet friends, roommates and professors. Attend chapel or a class. Dine in the Caf or, better yet, take him or her out to eat! Meals in the dining center range in price from approximately $8 to $12. Be sure to join us for our dessert at 2 p.m. We will have a great guest speaker that you don't want to miss. 

Saturday, Oct. 28 we will gather for a morning of friendly competition at The Oasis Fun Center, followed by a pizza lunch. At The Oasis fun center, everyone will have the chance to play a round of miniature golf, a game of laser tag AND a race in go-karts.  Prizes will be awarded! If this outing isn't your forte, you're welcome to join us just for the pizza luncheon.

Bring the entire family for the weekend. Each family will receive a Simpson University parent license plate frame or other Simpson swag as a thank you gift so be sure to register and check in for your packet and gift. Below is the tentative schedule. The finalized schedule will be available in your welcome packet.
