Parent Events

College is a time for students to leave home and grow into adulthood. But that doesn’t mean mom and dad can’t stop by every once in a while. In fact, we welcome and encourage parents to visit the University and get involved on a regular basis. 

We offer a few sanctioned events specifically for parents each year, including Family Weekend, Parent Orientation and the Parent Phonathon.

We want our parents to feel welcome on campus. Please remember to check this site periodically throughout the year for more parent visit opportunities.

Roommate Meet and Greet

Students and parents will have the opportunity to meet with other residents of the building as well as view residence hall rooms. There will be separate sessions for parents and guests.

Parent Orientation at Ben Beginnings

Benedictine University developed a Parent Orientation to support parents' understanding of the our university. The program provides further insight into the academic programs and student services. The sessions are organized to help you help your son/daughter succeed.

Family Weekend

Join the Benedictine University community as we celebrate Family Weekend with sports, games, food, music and fun!
