Family Day This Weekend

Another exciting day will be taking place soon at Central Methodist University. Family Day is set to take place this year with a day full of events on September 23.

At Central, Family Day is a great opportunity for students’ families to come to campus and see how college life is going for their students.

“I feel that Family Day is an opportunity for CMU to create a lasting memory for our students and their families. We want our students to look back on their time at Central and remember this day,” said Joshuah Dietz, coordinator of student programming at CMU.

Dietz also said that, “students and parents will have a large variety of sporting events to attend and activities to participate in. Families can attend our Eagle Tailgate Palooza for games, face painting, free food, and more.”

Family Day is an important day for parents and students. It is a great way for students and families to spend the day with one another and make new memories. Dietz says that the day will be similar to ones in the past.
