Parents & Families

Family Weekend

This is a unique opportunity for your family to get a firsthand look at your student's PLNU experience. Attend chapel and maybe even a class alongside your student; get a historical tour of campus; commune with friends and other parents in the cafeteria; and attend some Sea Lion games, a concert, and informational seminars.

Immerse yourself in the history and spirit of PLNU. Homecoming hosts more than 50 events on campus, so there are plenty of ways to reconnect or connect for the first time.

It’s the moment many parents anticipate with mixed emotion. Watch with pride as your student’s hard work pays off and a formative chapter of his or her life comes to a celebratory close. Save a seat at graduation.
