Western Kentucky University's Parent & Family Weekend has become an annual event for our current students, their parents, and their families.  There are many events to choose from!  Check out the links to the left for online registration and ticket purchase, schedule of events, family of the year nomination form, stadium seating chart, and more.

For the convenience of our Parents and Families, online registration is available (see the top link on the left-hand side of this page). (Please note that online registration does not work well with smart phones and IPads).

Purchasing your event tickets ahead of time will ensure a quick check-in where tickets and other information can be picked up either Friday evening, September 28th, or Saturday, September 29th.  PFW check in will be located on the 1st floor of the Downing Student Union, (tickets purchased through PFW Registration will not be available for pick up at the Football Ticket Office or the Will-Call Window at Diddle Arena).  

So, bring your tailgating items and get ready to show your Hilltopper Spirit!  We look forward to seeing WKU students, parents, and family members on Saturday, September 29th as the WKU Hilltoppers host the Marshall Thundering Herd!
