A day filled with fun, Family Day begins early Saturday morning. Families can participate in the annual golf outing or Rocky's 5K Walk/Run. For younger relatives, the University Union Board will host a carnival with free prizes. Families are invited to participate in tailgating prior to the 3 p.m. football game in Q-lot. There, 80's rock band 38 special will perform. Free food will be handed out to freshmen and their relatives during lunch time.
Originally formed in Jacksonville, Florida, 38 special has been together for nearly 40 years. The famous 80's rock band is well known for their hits "Hold on Loosely", "Caught Up in You" and "Rockin' Into the Night".
Check-in begins at 8 a.m. on the first floor of the University Union. There, the University Union Board will answer any questions. For the full schedule of events, campus maps, and more visit http://www.wiu.edu/student_services/university_union_board/family_day/index.php
