Family & Friends Day

Hello Husky Friends and Families!

We are excited to welcome friends, families, and other guests to campus this year for Family and Friends Day. Family and Friends Day is a great opportunity for you to experience campus with your student. There is a full day of fun activities planned in addition to other activities happening across campus.

What is Family and Friends Day?
Family and Friends Day is held on campus each fall and features events and programs focused on providing students and their families the opportunity to explore campus, enjoy quality time together and connect with other families, staff and faculty.

Everyone is welcome!
Family and Friends Day is not only for families of first-year students and it’s definitely not just for parents. All St. Cloud State families, extended families, siblings and supporters are welcome to join us!
