| LIFE AT WSU | Student Involvement | Family Day
As a parent, sibling, or grandparent of a Worcester State University student, Family Day is a great opportunity to discover or enjoy your students’ home away from home. Spend time with your student while eating brunch in the Sheehan Hall dining hall, watching a football game, or having your caricature drawn at the Family Fair. The Student Affairs Division invites you to join us on campus for this wonderful autumn tradition.
