Family Engagement Day
SCU hosts more than 150 students and parents from the Greater Washington Neighborhood each year to get a taste of college life.
Each year, TN invites a group of students from the Greater Washington community to come to campus for a full day of events. The goal is to provide a small glimpse into what college life is like. Current SCU students provide tours that include residence halls, the Solar Decathlon house, athletic facilities, and classroom spaces.
For the parents, the day is a chance to introduce them to the steps and preparation required for college. SCU staff provide tours of the library and classroom space, as well as a chance to attend sessions with admissions counsellors and first-generation faculty members.
