College welcomes parents and family Nov. 2-3
Huntington, Ind.—With students attending classes for two months now, parents and families may wonder what it is their loved one is really doing with his or her time. On November 2-3, parents and families will get a glimpse of that life at Huntington College’s annual Family Weekend.
Many activities are planned for the special weekend that fit all types of families and personalities. Classes will be open all day Friday for parents and families to attend, as will the Dining Commons for lunches and dinners. The residence halls will have open hours for families to visit the students’ rooms Friday from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m., and Saturday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., and the Bookstore will be open Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Blair Dowden. Huntington College administrators, Ned Kiser, Vice President for Advancement, and John Paff, Director of Communications, will present “e-resources For Parents and Family” at the General Session, which will introduce the families to the HC website and “walk” them through the locations and kinds of information, programming, and services available to them. The session will be followed by a reception where the families will meet the faculty and administrators of Huntington College.
For those who enjoy the arts, Huntington College Theatre presents its fall production, “Side Show” Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. Also, the Robert E.
