Parents and family members of students will be on campus Jan. 30 to Feb. 1 for Monarch Family Weekend, sponsored by the Office of Student Activities and Leadership (OSAL).

A full schedule of activities is planned, from campus tours and a reception hosted by President Roseann Runte to a "Sampling of the Arts" and a presentation on academics by each of the colleges.

"This is a special opportunity to become better acquainted with the Old Dominion University campus and all it has to offer," said Dana Burnett, vice president for student services.

Visitors can also attend open houses sponsored by the University Chaplains Association, a Greek community carnival, a "Cultural Explosions" presentation by the Office of Multicultural Student Services and a men's basketball game the evening of Jan. 31.

Following the game, OSAL will roll out the red carpet and treats for a Mardi Gras-style party in Webb Center, complete with blackjack, bingo and more, where participants can play for fake cash and win prizes.

The final event for the weekend is a Lady Monarch basketball game at 2 p.m. Feb. 1.
