As college students flock to Springfield to start another academic year, Missouri State University has several events lined up for those students and their parents. 

The official move in day for residence halls is Friday.  So is Playfair—that’s a high energy, team-building experience at the Allison Fields. While the students are out there having fun, the parents can relax at the President’s dessert reception.

Saturday, parents and kids can enjoy a meal together at the “See You Later” brunch. Once the parents head back home, the students can hang out at one of the largest events of the year, Fan Fest and Bear Bash.

New Student Convocation will take place at JQH Arena on Sunday as Dr. Cameron LaBarr talks about “Unity in Community.”

Finally, students can discover student organizations to suit their interests on campus at the New Student Festival, and mingle at the Belong-B-Q.

A full schedule of events can be found on MSU's Welcome Weekend website.
