Students with Families

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.
