Family involvement and support is extremely important to students as they pursue their college degree. At SIU Carbondale, we want family members to share in the Saluki experience by not only becoming involved in activities on campus, but by learning about issues their students may be going through, remaining aware of important dates, etc.
Thursday, September 19th - Sunday, September 22nd, 2024
