Students with Families

Our Next Event:

What is Students with Families?

The Students with Families program is free, open to all Indiana University Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) students and their immediate families, and sponsored by a grant from the Indiana-Purdue Student Government Association. The evenings begin with a kid-appealing dinner followed by special programs for young children and programs for parents that are geared to the needs and interests of non-traditional students. All programs run from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Walb Classic Ballroom.
