Students from all over enjoy Family & Friends Weekend

The weekend of October 23 was Chatham University’s annual Family and Friends weekend. Students were able to have friends and family come to visit their dorms and attend campus events, including the annual talent show, an exclusive premier of the film “Goosebumps,” based on the popular children’s’ book series, Breakfast and Bellini’s at the president’s house, and a trip to Kennywood Amusement Park’s Fright Night.  There were many students who had family coming from long distances, and this event allowed them to spend time with their family and friends.

Students who live far from home particularly appreciated the eventful weekend.

“It was fun. It gave me a chance to be with my family. I wish they did more events like this,” said first-year Rebekah Dunn, who is a Buffalo native.

Some students who live in the city of Pittsburgh brought local friends and family to enjoy the festivities.

“I think it’s a good idea to get other communities such as Pitt here so they can see what we experience,” said Pittsburgh native and first-year Exercise Science student Diamond Ricketts.
