Parent & Family Weekend

Parent & Family Weekend, March 8-10, 2018, is an informative, engaging and enjoyable time for you and your family to connect with your college student. Over the course of the weekend, NNU will welcome parents and families to visit campus to interact with the people and places that have become so important to your son or daughter.

Why Should I Attend Parent & Family Weekend?

In addition to the opportunity to experience programs, discussions, fine arts performances and more from members of the NNU community, attending Parent & Family Weekend provides a wonderful chance for you to spend quality time with your student. This time can strengthen your relationship and allow your son or daughter the opportunity to bridge the gap between their life on and away from campus.
