As a family member, UC is your home away from home as well! Parent & Family Programs hosts events throughout the year to provide opportunities for you to visit your student and connect with UC!
Bearcats Bound Orientation
Each summer, we welcome new Bearcats and their families to campus for Bearcats Bound Orientation. We look forward to meeting you and getting you started on your journey toward Move-In!
Following Move-In, we host the Welcome Brunch for families on Sheakley Lawn! The event occurs immediately following New Student Convocation. If you're around campus on Friday, August 24, join us from 10:30am-12 noon for brunch, music, and giveaways. It's a great chance to relax and enjoy a meal with your fellow families prior to your departure for home!
Family Weekend is held each fall to give parents and families the opportunity to spend time with their student, experience life at UC, and explore our city of Cincinnati. It's a schedule-packed weekend of events to enjoy with your family. Everyone is welcome and we have activities for all ages from 0 to 100!
Colors of Spring Paint Night
Join us for our annual Colors of Spring Paint Night to create your own UC-themed masterpiece. This is an instructor-guided painting experience, so you are sure to love your final product! You can grab dinner near campus and then join us for painting and delicious after-dinner desserts!
Say "CONGRATS" at Commencement
Is your Bearcat graduating? Visit us at the Parent & Family Programs tent/table at Commencement to write a celebratory message to your Bearcat and have your family's photo taken. We share the photos on social media where you can tag your student and download the pictures.
