Family Day

Family Day

On behalf of the entire Wilkes University Community, it is our pleasure to invite you to attend our virtual Family Day 2020, Saturday, October 10.

Family Day is an annual fall tradition held on the Wilkes campus, providing an opportunity for families to reconnect with their student while getting a first hand look into a day in the life at Wilkes! The weekend will afford you many opportunities to spend time together as a family (virtually), as well as to meet faculty, staff, administrators, friends and other Wilkes families.

"Family Of Colonels" Photo Contest

Submit a photo of what it looks like to be a "Family of Colonels" to studentdev@wilkes.edu on October 10 during Family Day! Our Leadership team will vote on the best submission. The winner will receive a basket of Wilkes gear and goodies for the family!

Photos must be submitted before 5 p.m. on Family Day.
