Faculty, please join us for Parent and Family Weekend

Please join us as guests of the Parents Association at two separate special events scheduled during DeSales University’s Family Weekend Friday, October 19, and Saturday, October 20.  While we welcome you to all the day’s activities, the two we encourage you to join us at include a reception on Friday evening and a dinner on Saturday evening where there will be lots of opportunities for interaction with students and their parents.

Most attendees at these two events are freshman parents, many of whom are new to the college experience. They will have lots of questions and there will be many opportunities for interaction and discussion. Your presence gives these parents an opportunity to meet our amazing faculty. You can share stories and learning opportunities from inside and outside the classroom. Just talking with you will excite and also reassure them.

The Friday reception is from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. (at 8:00 the parents go up to the Musical Revue in Labuda Center.) The Saturday dinner with Father O’Connor starts at 6:30 p.m. Both dinners will be in the University Center, Gerald White Pavilion.

Please respond and let me know if you are able to attend.  Thanks for your cooperation.

The Natural Science Department Chemistry faculty & students will present the 12th  Annual Chemistry Demonstrations Program on Wednesday, October 24  from 7:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. in the Hurd Science Center Auditorium. The program has received rave reviews and seats are first come first served. This event is open to the DeSales community and the general public free of charge.

The colorful and explosive presentations are designed to be visually interesting and exciting, as well as illustrative of important but easily understood chemical concepts. Our faculty and students take great pride in this event and are always excited to see a full house!

Parents, please feel free to bring your children. Many faculty members have done that at our past presentations and it was enjoyed by all.

We’re looking forward to seeing you at our public presentation.
