The Parents and Family Committee

The Parents and Family Committee is the executive committee of the Parents and Family Association. The 20-30 committee members act as a sounding board for parent and family opinions and represent parents and family members with sons and daughters in all class years. Parents and Family Committee meetings are held on campus twice a year, usually in conjunction with Family Weekend (fall) and an Admission Open House (spring).
