The BYU Alumni Association invites moms and dads to Parents Weekend Oct. 19–21 for three days of activities with their students and a chance to visit the new Gordon B. Hinckley Alumni and Visitors Center.
“We’re calling the weekend ‘Welcome to Cougartown’ because we are welcoming you to the new Hinckley Center and also showing you and your student the best of BYU,” says Curtis C. Isaak (BA ’92), program coordinator. Activities include lectures, museum and campus tours, classes, a barbecue, a hike to the Y, a 5K alum run, a Sunday fireside, and more.

Consideration will be given to all nominations but especially to those that provide concise yet detailed information about the nominee.
Nominations must include a nomination form and at least three letters of support. BYU employees, Alumni Association board members, Church missionaries and General Authorities, and government officials are not eligible for the awards. General Authorities should not be contacted for letters of support.
