Family Day at Northwestern, a tradition growing strong

October 1, 2008

Approximately 250 people enjoyed the festivities of Family Day at Northwestern Oklahoma State University this fall.

“We were very pleased with the attendance at Family Day this year,” said Brad Franz, vice president for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management.

Northwestern students and their families were encouraged to register as they arrived in the Northwestern Bookstore to receive prizes. Ninety-nine families registered at Family Day this year.

“There was a great turn out, and we were able to offer the families a fun-filled day,” Franz said.

During the presidential pre-game program Dr. Janet Cunningham, university president, welcomed all the families, and refreshments were served.

After the reception, families were encouraged to attend the tailgate and enjoy the food served by the Rowdy Rangers.

“This event wouldn’t have been possible without all the help from administration, faculty, staff and the students who brought their families to campus,” Franz said. “We also appreciate the Rowdy Rangers and those who helped serve for all their hard work.”
Family Day is an annual event where Northwestern students have the opportunity to show their families around campus.
