Family Weekend 2017

Fall Family Weekend '17 was very exciting for everyone at Missouri State.  It was a beautiful weekend enjoyed by families from across the country visiting with their students and learning more about their students “home away from home”.

From the Student Showcase to rappelling with the Bear Battalion or enjoying the Nancy Allen Book Talk; and much more, families caught up and enjoyed each other’s company.

Families were seen sitting around catching up with their student; taking lots of photos; visiting the residence halls; enjoying the football game; enjoying the talents of our students at the Student Showcase; and visiting with the Career Center staff at the Welcome Breakfast.  It was a great weekend to be a Bear!

An event like Family Weekend cannot take place without the help of many, many people! A special thanks to all the volunteers who contributed to the success of Family Weekend ’17. From stuffing goodie bags to working the check-in table or taking photos, the volunteers were friendly, helpful and happy to visit with the families of our students.
