Family Day

The Division of Enrollment Management and Student Affairs is responsible for Family Day and other large-scale programs to support student success. Join us for a fun day of activities for the whole family.   The day is built around our home football game for the day - but we have a variety of activities for students, parents, siblings, and other family members both before and after the game.  We partner with student organizations, the library, the German Heritage Center, the planetarium, the MSU movie series, and other Academic and co-curricular departments to bring a large variety of events that you can pick and choose from. If you have any questions or would like to be involved in planning or volunteering for Family Day, please contact  Jerry Schearer, Associate Dean for Inclusion and Outreach or call 610-683-4923.
