Yes, if you would like your student to attend an event, you will need to register them in the system. It is important that you verify the times and dates of the events with your student in case they have classes or other events that overlap the schedule.
Once you are logged into the system, you can review the cost of each event.
Children under 4 may attend the Bear Down BBQ for free, but will need tickets for other Family Weekend events such as the Family Fun Zone and Family Fun Walk/Run. Since the Wildcat Experience Package includes a paid ticket to the BBQ, we recommend purchasing tickets for children to the other events a la carte.
Family Weekend staff will be placing orders for t-shirts and the Bear Down BBQ on events with food in early October. So there may be a limited number of t-shirts and tickets available for the Bear Down BBQ after that date, however, there is no guarantee that the tickets for the BBQ will be available the day of the event. Families will be able to register for the Wildcat Family Conference, the Family Fun Zone and the Family Weekend Fun Walk/Run onsite. We do suggest you purchase your tickets ahead of time so you don’t miss out!
