Columbia College Family & Friends Weekend is a time when all members of the campus community (past and present), their families, and friends are invited to share in the Columbia College experience. The weekend’s events will include a Friday evening activity, the annual Ludy Bowl and accompanying festivities, as well as an opportunity to stay in Columbia with optional community events. Sibling’s Day is also in conjunction with Family & Friends Weekend, held in October.
Mom’s Day is held on campus annually and is usually scheduled in November. A tradition since 1972, Mom's Day gives Columbia College students the opportunity to share an enjoyable day with their mothers. Held in September, Mom's Day includes an address by a keynote speaker, brunch in the cafeteria, and a variety of other activities.
Dad’s Night is scheduled in February. Begun in 1968 as Dad's Day, this event has become a special tradition for Columbia College women and their fathers. Dad's Night opens with an on-campus reception and concludes with a father-daughter dance.
