I hope you have all received your flyers and e-mails about Family Weekend October 5, 6 & 7, and that you have made your plans to attend. For those of us who live outside the Carolinas this is a really big deal. We don’t get many trips to Wofford and this is the perfect weekend to see our sons and daughters – and probably our first time seeing them since they left in August. (Oh my, how have we survived???)
There are lots of planned activities for this weekend. You will have the opportunity to meet your student’s professors, roommates, friends and other parents. The bookstore is open all weekend and you MUST embarrass your child by wearing a “Wofford Mom or Dad” t-shirt. There are wonderful art exhibits in the Sandor Teszler Library Gallery and the Martha Cloud Chapman Gallery. You might even have time to take a drive out to Glendale and see the Goodall Environmental Studies Center. Among my favorite activities: ”Putting on The Dog” Friday night at 9pm in the Village. This year it’s “The Ultimates” a motown band, and of course I wouldn’t miss the tailgating and the Wofford vs Furman football game on Saturday. Tailgating at Wofford is brought to a whole new level. These kids know how to entertain!! The Women’s Soccer Team will be busy with a home game Friday night at 6 pm against Elon and a game Sunday afternoon at 2 pm against UNCG.
This is such a fun weekend I hope to see you all there!!! Attached are some pictures from last year.
