Childcare Options

Homecoming and Reunion Weekend is a great time to come back to campus and reconnect with friends. For alumni who are bringing their families, please know that most events are very family friendly with the exception of the Friday night reunion class events.  This year we are excited to partner with Campus Recreation and Preferred Childcare to offer age appropriate childcare options. Please note that Preferred Childcare is also available throughout the weekend.
