2017 Parent Weekend


Register today to be part of Parent Weekend 2017! Be sure to join us Friday morning at check-in to receive your welcome packet, discount coupons for Follet's Bookstore (textbooks are excluded), a Bean Scene coupon, tickets for the dessert social, and your selection of a Simpson swag item (one per family). 

On Friday you can attend classes and chapel with your student, meet their new friends and roommates, dine in the Caf (or take him or her out for lunch and dinner). You won't want to miss the delicious dessert social we have planned for Friday afternoon where you will enjoy a time other parents and hear from a special guest speaker. This is also a Visit Day for prospective students and their parents. We would love for you to share your Simpson experience should you cross paths with them on campus. After all, you're now a pro at having a child in college and can offer words of encouragement!

On Saturday we will join together for a time of fun and games! We will head north to the Oasis Fun Center where you and your family can play miniature golf, drive a go-cart, and zap each other at laser tag. Following this rousing time of friendly competition, we will return to campus for a delicious pizza lunch and award prizes.
