Parents & Families Weekend - Call for Participants

Posted: September 21, 2017

The Office for Undergraduate Education will be hosting the College of Agricultural Sciences Open House on Saturday, October 14th from 10 am - noon. We welcome your participation in this event.

The Penn State Parents & Families Weekend will be held Friday, October 13th through Sunday, October 15th and provides an opportunity for engagement in activities across the University. The College of Agricultural Science will be holding an Open House on Saturday, October 14th from 10 am - noon in the ASI lobby, lawn, and courtyard.

The Office of Undergraduate Education welcomes your involvement in talking with students and their families to showcase the variety of opportunities in the College of Agricultural Sciences. For this year, we are planning a scavenger hunt and would like to include some hands-on activities – we have outdoor space reserved and can include family-friendly lawn games and activities. This would be a great event for showcasing activities/projects from your courses, clubs, organizations, and competitive teams and will provide an opportunity to engage students and their families in conversation. There is always an interest in research activities; poster presentations can be displayed and brief research talks can be included in the event. The Open House attracts visitors from outside of the college - be creative as this can be an exciting learning and discovery event for attendees!

TO PARTICIPATE: Please contact Dr. Alyssa Bumbaugh () by Tuesday, October 3rd and indicate the name of the organization/group/presenter, a contact email and phone number, and any space needs (table for display, power, outside area for demonstration or lawn activity, etc.).
