Can my younger sibling come along?

If your sibling is a high-school Junior or older then they can come as a participant of the event. They would need to register and pay online as well.

I am the parent of a student coming to the event, will I be able to participate in the activities or should I make other plans?

We highly encourage parent involvement, so you are more than welcome to attend as much of the event as you would like.

There are a number of sessions that will help you to understand the university, global internship, and financial information from a parent perspective. We will have a Parent Q&A and individual meetings scheduled with applicants and accepted students, so please come ready to ask all of your questions!

Throughout the event, if you would rather not sit in on a certain session, etc, feel the freedom to hang out in the Oasis, take a walk around campus, or connect with a staff member and we can give you directions to Mugshots, the Mall of America or other local attractions.
