Welcome Letter

January 2012

Greetings Parents & Guardians,

The Morehouse College family invites you to attend the 25th Annual Parents Weekend, February 9 – 12, 2012.  President Franklin’s vision is for each student to evolve into Renaissance Men with a social conscience and a global perspective to uplift and to serve.  To achieve this goal, it takes the wisdom and support of all our constituencies.  We sincerely appreciate your support of the College and look forward to your presence and feedback on how the College is doing as we continue to forge ahead.

Whether this is your first Parents Weekend or you are returning, you will find interesting educational programs and numerous opportunities to join in celebrating Morehouse College’s 145th Founder’s Day.  Of special note, the Morehouse College Parents Council will feature an “Old School Reception” at the nearby Loft at Castleberry Hill on Thursday evening.  Learn more about this event on the registration page!  I encourage you to take advantage of opportunities to view the campus, visit with staff and administrators, and to interact with other parents and supporters of Morehouse College. 

This is a very special time for the College.  There is enormous energy and excitement at Morehouse.  But don’t take my word for it.  Come see for yourselves and enjoy an extraordinary weekend of celebration. A schedule of events and online registration for the Parents Weekend/Founder’s Day celebration can be accessed by clicking here.

We look forward to seeing you February 9 – 12, 2012, and to greeting you personally.
