Record number of friends and family expected for TWU Family Day Oct. 8


DENTON — A record number of parents, siblings, grandparents, spouses and children of Texas Woman's University students are expected to visit the Denton campus Saturday, Oct. 8, for TWU’s Annual Family Day. About 800 students and their family and friends are expected to participate.

“We want to extend a warm welcome to all the parents, families and guests,” said Jennifer Garrett, Family Day Committee chair. “We have a full day of activities planned. And by the time the day is over, we're sure our students' families will have a better understanding of our pride in TWU.”

The guests will have an opportunity to visit sites on campus, take a hayride, paint tote bags, learn Latin, Country Western or Square dancing, enjoy a picnic lunch, watch armadillo racing, take a trolley tour of Denton’s downtown square and participate in TWU’s version of the television game show Family Feud.

Friends and family of TWU students will pay $25 each to participate. Children under the age of 12 and TWU students are admitted free when accompanied by a guest.

For more information about the program, call (940) 898-3593 or e-mail jgarrett@twu.edu.
