Parents Weekend to Feature College Classes Plus a Variety of Special Events
GENESEO, N.Y. -- Parents of Geneseo students will have the opportunity to attend classes taught by faculty at a special program during Parents Weekend Oct. 24-25.
Parents College will feature informative lectures and lively discussions on major topics of the day, allowing parents to simulate the classroom experience of a Geneseo student. The program will feature a wide array of classes ranging from “Understanding the 2008 Elections” to “The Physics of Baseball.”
“This is our first year of Parents College and we think it will be a memorable component of a weekend full of activities,” said Tammy Ingram, director of parent relations at Geneseo. “They will certainly get a sense of what their son or daughter experiences at Geneseo on a daily basis.”
A variety of other events are scheduled for the weekend including tours, workshops, musical and sporting events and special entertainment. Well-known actor Kevin Bacon and his brother Michael will perform their musical show Saturday evening at 8 o’clock in Kuhl Gym but parents must purchase tickets for the event in advance through their registration process.
