Activites supported by the Parents & Family Council in the upcoming year can be accessed online now.


Our students' parents and family are considered integral members of the campus community, and invited to join us for a variety of events organized by the Alumni Association, College of Creative Arts, and more.

Here's a quick summary of activities of interest for parents and family members:

  • Welcome Days: Prior to the beginning of the Fall Semester, parents and family members of incoming students are invited to join us for Welcome Days, a two day event filled with important workshops to help you learn about the University and its many resources, and meet the campus community.
  • Sneak Preview: Every Spring Semester, prospective students and parents are invited to our campus open house, Sneak Preview Day.
  • Commencement: is held at the end of May. Parents and family are welcome to departmental year-end celebrations thoughout the month.
  • Volunteering: If you're interested in volunteering for some of the activities on campus, we try to provide opportunities for parents to come to campus and be part of the SF State experience. Click here to see current volunteer opportunities for you.
