What our parents are saying:

“What an awesome opportunity, as a parent, to be involved with Cowboy Parents Council!  We are given a direct voice to UW, as our opinions are sought and valued in making decisions on issues that directly affect the education of our students.  As we meet with UW Administrators/staff, tour new facilities, and volunteer at UW events, I've been given an insight into UW that I would have never had without being on the council.  I've been able to share this journey with my three boys and I have enjoyed every minute!”

Family Weekend

Each year Family Weekend offers families an opportunity to share in the UW experience and spend time with their own special student.  Parents, grandparents, siblings, and other family members of currently enrolled UW students are invited to visit the UW-Laramie campus for an event-packed, memory-making weekend!  Family Weekend is hosted by Cowboy Parents and the UW Division of Student Affairs.

Family Weekend is September 29-October 1, 2017.  All cancellations will be assessed a $20 handling fee per person registered, and must be received no later than September 15, 2017.  NO refunds will be made following September 15, 2017.

Family Weekend is a self-funded event.  The registration fee includes: light appetizers and refreshments while you pick up your packet during registration on Friday evening or Saturday morning, the Family Weekend Tailgate Lunch on Saturday, and the President's Brunch on Sunday morning with a chance to win prizes for UW students whom attend.  It also covers the cost of overhead expenses including publications, registration materials, staff, building and room rentals, equipment rentals, and non-ticketed events and activities offered throughout the weekend.  Event fees are kept to a minimum; the weekend is designed to break even by just covering its expenses.
