Posted on September 17, 2012

In one of the highlights of the fall semester, Cal U students will welcome their families to campus with a series of special events during the 34th annual Family Day. 

Formerly known as Parents Day, Family Day brings parents, family members and friends together with their Cal U student for a full day of fun, including athletic events and a variety of other activities. 

Last year, more than 800 students and family members participated.

From 4-8 p.m. Friday, free movies will be shown in Vulcan Theatre and musicians will perform outdoors at the Natali Amphitheatre.

Family Day registration begins 8 a.m. Saturday at the information desk in the lobby of the Natali Student Center.   

The Parents Leadership Council will meet at 9 a.m. in the Kara Alumni House.

A Family Day brunch will be offered, for a fee, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in the Gold Rush Room inside the Natali Student Center. 


The University Choir will give a free concert at 11 a.m. at the Emeriti Faculty Fountain, on Third Street.

Other activities are planned from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on the campus Quad. Faculty members from the Department of Art and Design, Greek Life groups and the Student Government Association will be conducting activities. The popular Kid Zone, sponsored by the Black Student Union, will provide fun for all ages with games, entertainment and face painting. 

Tours and activities also are planned at Vulcan Village, on the south campus, including   a picnic-style lunch for parents and families. Complimentary shuttle service from the Natali Student Center will be available.

Family Day activities conclude with the Vulcans’ home football game against IUP beginning at 3:30 p.m.
