Parents Weekends are unique opportunities during the fall and spring, where parents and families can visit campus and experience the atmosphere and activities of student life at Hillsdale. Both fall and spring events follow the same schedule. The invitations are mailed in September and February. The weekends foster valuable interchanges among students, parents, faculty and administrators, thereby improving communication among the various members of the Hillsdale family.
On Friday night, the Parents Association sponsors a mixer for parents, faculty, staff and students. This is a great time to meet and fellowship with one another.
For President’s Club members, President and Mrs. Arnn will be hosting a special reception at their home, Broadlawn, on Friday evening. You will receive a separate invitation to this event, and we are thrilled that you will have this opportunity to meet and speak with Dr. and Mrs. Arnn in this lovely setting.
Parent/Faculty conferences on Saturday morning are one of the highlights of Parents Weekend. Here you will have the opportunity to meet with your students’ professors to discuss academic progress. Please note that it is very important to respond quickly when you receive your Parents Weekend information in the mail, as appointments with professors are made on a first-come, first-served basis.
Also on Saturday, you can enjoy a luncheon where Dr. Arnn, President of Hillsdale College, will officially welcome families to campus and give an update on the school. Saturday afternoon features an event that is appropriate to the season. Our semi annual Wine-Tasting event is held in the late afternoon featuring wines from a select region. It has become one of our most popular Parent Weekend activities. Evening entertainment—a play or concert—is available after dinner and sometimes on Sundays, too. To reserve tickets for any performance, please call the Fine Arts Box Office at (517) 607-2848, or Amy Glass at (517) 607-2410.
