Family Day

Family is a big part of life at Sul Ross State University, and being part of the Lobo Family isn't just for students. We know that your decision to follow your educational dreams will have a lasting impact on not just your life, but also the lives of those who have helped you get here. In celebration of this commitment to the life changing power of education, the Office of New Student Programs offers events throughout the year to keep families informed and engaged with life at Sul Ross State University.

Upcoming Events:

Fall 2018 Family Day September 29

Sul Ross State University will be hosting its Fall 2018 Family Day on September 29th. Please join the Office of New Student Programs and your fellow Lobo Family members for an afternoon of academic and athletic fellowship and entertainment on the Sul Ross campus in Alpine, TX.  We have an exciting day of events scheduled to help showcase what a typical action-packed weekend at Sul Ross looks like.  No registration is required and the whole family is welcome to attend. We will be greeting families and giving away special Family Day t-shirts at each event. Be sure to check them all out to maximize your chance of getting some SRSU memorabilia. We understand that you might not be able to attend every event, but we hope the schedule below helps you plan your Family Day weekend.
