Family & Friends Day

Join us on Saturday, September 29, 2018 for our 6th annual Family and Friends Day.  This is a day for families and friends of Indiana Tech students to come see what their student calls home, where their student is creating a life and investing so much time and energy as they pursue their education.  It is meant to be a fun-filled day of experiencing different activities across campus. This day is in collaboration of our Indiana Tech Homecoming Weekend. Some of the Family and Friends Day events will intersect with some of the Homecoming Weekend events. This is purposefully constructed to give family and friends a peak into the lives of what it means to be a part of the Warrior Family.

Everyone is welcome, but we will ask that you pre-register for the day by September 19, 2018 so we know to expect you. Some events require pre-registration.
