Family Weekend was packed with events
Despite the cloudy weather, St. Kate's family weekend was well attended. More than 400 students, parents and family members attended the Second City improv show at The O'Shaughnessy on Friday evening. Saturday favorites included the Parent and Family Association speaker event, It's a Jungle Out There: Financial Survival Skills for Life (and after!) College, presented by Certified Financial Counselor Charlie Bolognino, who provided basic tips for developing sound money habits during and after college.
Many families enjoyed attending the Wildcats soccer game with their daughters (we beat St. Mary's University, 2-0). Others took advantage of the James J Hill House tour on historic Summit Avenue. The weekend ended on Sunday with Mass and brunch. Most important was the cherished time between family members and their students.
