Prepare for the Parents

Hey everyone! This week, I decided to take a break from the student club posts to highlight an important event that happened this weekend. Last Friday and Saturday at Stanford University was Parents' Weekend! Almost all American universities have some sort of weekend for families to come up, visit their student, and learn about what their student has been doing (hopefully their tuition money is being put to good use!). This year, more than 3,600 family members participated in the 2014 Parents' Weekend at Stanford. The annual event gives family members a taste of what life is like for their Stanford undergraduates, and of course, allows them to spend time with their student! There were many events occurring all over campus to broadcast the amazing aspects of Stanford to parents and other family members, like a Q&A with the president, tours of different university programs and facilities, career planning seminars, and a showcase highlighting the amazing talents of different student groups on campus (like dance groups, a cappella groups, and other organizations that will be discusses in greater detail in later club posts!). Even though the events were informative and entertaining, I was most excited to spend time with my parents. It is going to be a long three weeks until I see them again for Spring Break!
Check out the photos and video below for some highlights from Parents' Weekend.

I loved showing my parents around campus!

It isn't Parent's Weekend without the appropriate merchandise!
