The Office of Parent & Family Programs is excited to announce Parent & Family Weekend 2013! This year's event will take place on October 4th-5th as part of the UCO vs.Missouri Western State Uuniversity football game. To give you the chance to spend time with your student, the office has planned activities starting Friday evening with registration and meet and greet. We encourage family members to spend time with their student with the different activities which can be found around Edmond and Oklahoma City. But don't forget to come out on Saturday before the football game to show your support and meet other family members. After the game, be sure to stay around on Sunday for the brunch and Silent Auction. This year will be the first of hopefully many silent auctions to come to help benefit the Parent & Family Association Scholarship.
Below you will find the cost of the event per participant. This price includes a lunch, t-shirt, game day ticket, tailgating festivities and Sunday Brunch/Silent Auction. Student price does not include a game ticket since students get in free.
Students Bundle: $20
Come on out and enjoy free entertainment from Bands. Eat dinner from different vendors, and for those who are 21 years and older sample a variety of different brews. Proceeds from the Bites & Brews will be donated to help Edmond Mobile Meals. Edmond Mobile Meals is a non-profit charitable organization that provides hot, nourishing meals to elderly and disabled persons who are unable to prepare meals for themselves.
