A Successful Bring Your Kids to Campus Day

The Resource for Students with Children hosted Bring Your Kids to Campus Day, where Portland State student parents and their children attended various events and activities throughout campus all day on Friday April 8.

Activities included bowling, pack a snack station and “explore and experiment” at Helen Gordon. At the Science Research and Teaching Center, there were chemistry demos and a showcase of the Biology Department’s Museum of Natural History. A panel discussion was hosted by Students Addressing Urban & Community Issues, discussing “Parenting in the City”, followed by a SAUCI luncheon. Additionally, there was craft-making at Green Roots, a DJ and dance party, a Campus REC Obstacle Course, a tour of PSU gardens, story time, and a dive-in movie.

Faculty, staff and student volunteers all worked together to create a fun day to engage with both student parents and their children.
