LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – The Center for Student Involvement is inviting students, families and alumni to be part of a new tradition at Eastern Oregon University: Family Weekend.
From first-year students looking for something fun to do, seniors preparing for life after graduation and families beginning the college search process, the aim is to get everyone involved.
“Reconnecting current students and families and enhancing the campus experience by fostering an interest in student development is the goal,” said Le Alexander, director of Student Involvement. “The activities we have planned are all about bringing in families and alumni to be part of that experience.”
Events are set for Friday and Saturday, April 17-18, and the annual Island Magic Lu’au and Show Saturday night is the main attraction. The event includes festive, traditional dishes and live entertainment – all prepared and performed by members of the Polynesian and Navigators clubs at EOU.
“The focus is on student life, recruitment and retention, but Family Weekend is also a great new activity for La Grande and our area as a whole to look forward to,” Alexander said.
With commencement just around the corner in June, EOU’s Career Services Center will hold an open house and workshop specifically for seniors. Alumni are encouraged to participate in this networking opportunity for soon-to-be-graduates.
Student Services will be promoting its Mountaineer Family Network as a resource for parents and other family members to stay connected with what’s happening at the university. They will also provide tips to help prepare for when students return home for the summer.
The senior art exhibition “Disclosure” will be on display in Nightingale Gallery over the weekend, and participants are invited to pick up a free pass to the Fitness Center and receive discounted tickets to the Mountaineer’s softball games versus the Oregon Institute of Technology.
The full schedule will be available soon and posted on the Center for Student Involvement’s website at www.eou.edu/center. Registration is needed by April 8 and the form is available online.
Accommodation options include the Best Western Plus Rama Inn & Suites, where a block of rooms has been reserved. Book by April 2 using the code “EOUFW” and receive a reduced rate.
