Family stands a student at move-in day

This exciting tradition at SMWC offers everyone in the family the opportunity to see the personal and academic growth that students experience on campus every day. Meet with other students and their families and interact with faculty and staff to get a look at the rich diversity of experiences and perspectives that influence students’ social and intellectual transformation.

These interactions occur through a variety of activities during the weekend: concerts from the SMWC Band and the SMWC Choirs, activities at the Stables with the Collegiate Horsemanship Association and students in the Equine Assisted Therapy minor, a service project with Sustainability Club, the student poster show and a student achievement banquet recognizing academic and leadership achievements of students.
