Parents are invited to attend Welcome Week. They will join their students for some activites and then attend programming events just for the parents, including the Parent Ice Cream Social with President Fleming and Concert of Prayer. Look for us at the Parents Welcome Area, sponsored by Hyatt Place. Check out maps and directions, or contact our parent coordinator. Special hotel rates are available.
Like Welcome Week offered before the fall semester, Welcome Weekend is designed to help new students adjust to PBA. In January during check-in, you will meet the Steering Committee, a student leader group that will serve as your guide for an action-filled weekend schedule. By the end of the weekend, you will know without a doubt PBA is for you!
