Family Day

Second Floor • Passan Hall • 570-408-4100 (T) • 570- 408-7811 (F) • Email

Continue a Wilkes Family tradition by attending the Family Day picnic.

Family Day gives you the opportunity to meet faculty and staff who have become, or are becoming an important part of your student's life. 

If you are from out-of-town, the Family Day brunch offers a chance to reunite and create a day of special memories.

If you live locally, the Family Day brunch offers the chance to enjoy Wilkes as you have not done before--through the eyes of a current student.
