PSU’s Bring Your Kids to Campus Day is a day-long, campus-wide celebration inviting students, staff, faculty, and their children to campus for events and activities.  The event is sponsored by the Resource Center for Students with Children and scheduled for April 8th, 2019 from 8:30-5:00 p.m.  Bring Your Kids to Campus Day is open to families of all PSU students, staff and faculty.  The event provides a full day of engagement in which departments, clubs, colleges, and community members host activities to educate and entertain young children in locations all over campus.

We invite all departments, community organizations, and student groups to participate in Bring Your Kids to Campus Day by holding “activity stations” to give children a taste of what their parents do at PSU and/or career exploration in a fun, child-friendly way.  Children will be accompanied by their parents for all activities.  Activities should be scheduled in a flexible, drop-in setting, (rather than specific classes or activities which require everyone to be there at the beginning and stay until the end) so that attendees may participate in the activity as their schedule allows, and be accessible to a wide range of ages. The Resource Center for Students with Children has the Smith Student Union ballroom reserved from 8:30-10:30am for anyone who needs space for their activity station. We are happy to help with ideas, logistics and supplies if you need it.

If you are interested in hosting an event station, please use the link http://tinyurl.com/BYKTCPSU2019  to fill out the participation form.  Even if you don’t have all the details yet, please just let us know your general idea for a station, and we are happy to help you figure out the details and logistics. Please email Pamela Bock at pbock@pdx.edu  if you have any additional questions. Thank you in advance for your consideration.  We look forward to an amazing event!
