MVNU Parents' Day

Saturday, Oct. 25
MVNU Parents' Day is just a couple of weeks away. A postcard invitation has been sent detailing the specific events and times for the day, so checking the mailbox often! This is a great opportunity for parents to spend some time with their student on campus and to get a taste of college life.

The schedule is laid back, offering a number of activities for students, parents, and the entire family to enjoy. The day will offer men's and women's soccer; dime-a-dog sponsored by SGA; Open Houses in our residence areas; an Oaktoberfest with hayrides, food, and games; and much more. Our campus is absolutely beautiful during the autumn and Parents' Day is a great time to plan a visit. We'll see you soon!
