Make Plans for Parent and Family Weekend

Publication Date: 9/14/2011

It won’t be long before parents and families will be back on campus to spend time with their students. Parent/Family Weekend is September 23-25. Now is the time to register, book a hotel, and view schedule updates.

Family members can experience some of what Memphis and Rhodes have to offer by:

  • Attending a class
  • Taking a tour of the beautiful campus led by a student Diplomat
  • Attending athletic events
  • Meeting faculty and staff at a departmental open house
  • Seeing their student give a presentation or participate in a student-led event
  • Getting a taste of Memphis food in the Burrow Refectory
  • Enjoying the “70’s Rock: The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly” Presentation by Rock Music Historian Barry Drake
  • Listening to the amazing sounds of Rhodes two a cappella ensembles—Lipstick on Your Collar (the women’s ensemble) and Woolsocks (the men’s ensemble)
  • Stargazing in Rhodes Tower observatory and deck (weather permitting)
  • Attending the Kappa Delta All-Sing
  • Enjoying a performance by Contents Under Pressure, Rhodes Improv Comedy Troupe

In addition to these activities, families will have time to learn about their student’s favorite things to do and places to go in Memphis.

We hope to see you here Sept. 23-25!
