Comets enjoy the festivities at Family Day 2017.

Family Day 2017, held Oct. 7 on campus, gave parents and loved ones the opportunity to reconnect with their students. Guests experienced life as a Comet by participating in a variety of campus programs and heard campus leaders discuss students’ experiences since the start of the school year.

New this year, food trucks gave attendees the chance to try a variety of local meal options while watching student organizations perform. Students and family members enjoyed connecting with new friends, taking photos with Temoc — the University’s mascot whose name is Comet spelled backward — and cheering on the volleyball team as they played Belhaven University.
