Parent and Family Weekend 2014 - Friday, September 19th - Saturday, September 20th 

Join our talented faculty and staff, and your student, for a weekend of student performances, stunning art and meaningful social engagement on Columbia's campus. The weekend begins with our annual welcome-back event, The Wabash Arts Corridor (WAC) Crawl – a festival that celebrates the culture and creativity of not only Columbia, but the surrounding area. The WAC Crawl features gallery openings, concerts, dance and street performances, multimedia demonstrations, chalk art and more!

On Saturday morning, participate in dynamic intellectual discussions with faculty, experience your student’s academic journey through departmental presentations, and later, attend the President’s Reception! Don't miss this enjoyable opportunity for insightful discovery and engagement within your student’s Columbia community!  

You can sign up for our Parent Newsletter to receive up-to-date information about the weekend.  

A full schedule of events will be posted this page in the coming weeks.  For now, mark your calendars and begin making your travel arrangements - we can't wait to see you on campus! 

Registration for the weekend is required and will begin on Friday, August 1st.
