Family Weekend is September 23-24, 2016!

The Board of Directors of the EIU Parents Club would like to welcome you to another fun-filled Family Weekend. The weekend begins Friday night with entertainment in the Grand Ballroom. For families who enjoy Bingo, the University Ballroom will be your destination.

Parents Club scholarship recipients will be honored at a Friday evening reception. The recipients will also be announced and recognized at the concert on Saturday evening. Please join us at the concert and honor these devoted students for their accomplishments.

On Saturday morning, the Parents Club will host a free continental breakfast in the Vending Lounge in the MLK Jr. Union from 9-11 a.m. Parents Club representatives will be in attendance to answer questions about the organization. Kickoff for the EIU football game is set for 1:30 p.m. Wear your EIU blue and join other families as they cheer the Panthers on to victory. To end the weekend activities, enjoy a concert Saturday night at Lantz Arena.

Parents Club has been a fulfilling and great way to give back to this wonderful university. We have many goals and projects to help enrich the student and family experience. Parents Club awards scholarships, assists with move-in day, and offers monetary support to various student clubs at the university.
