Greetings Eagle Families,
We have been gearing up for Family Weekend - lining up speakers, tours, receptions, and other fun activities for students and their guests. But really, this weekend is for you and your student. Ask your student what they want to do during your visit and make memories together. Whether your Eagle Family includes parents, siblings and relatives, or it's a chosen family of friends and supporters - all are welcome.
We know that many families aren't able to join us in person. We'll share more ways that you can connect with us virtually, starting with our Fall Welcome webinar and discussion with Fanta Aw, VP of Undergraduate Enrollment, Campus Life, and Inclusive Excellence. You can also send your Eagle a shoutout on social media using the hashtag #AUEagleFamily and we'll share it on our big screens during select Family Weekend events. You can also encourage your student to grab a friend and come out for our events like Movie Night, the Change Can't Wait Festival and our exciting panel on Peaceful Transitions of Power, featuring two former White House Chiefs of Staff.
Whether we get to greet you in person or online - we look forward to staying connected through our Family Update newsletters and our Family Webinar Series. As always, you are welcome to reach out to us any time at [email protected].
From our nest to yours,
New Student and Family Programs
