• Family Day

    Saturday, September 22

    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.

    Online registration is now closed. You can still register at the Family Day Check-In Table on Saturday, September 22.
