Usually after a few weeks at college, it is the norm for a Winona State student to venture back home to wash laundry, have a home cooked meal, see old friends, and visit the parents. This is what usually happens, but not this time. The weekend of September 20th, parents came from far and wide to stay in Winona with their WSU students. Winona State hosted Family Weekend, and it brought in many tourists to our beautiful community. Luckily, the weather was beautiful so the families could enjoy all of the outdoor activities that Winona has to offer. I spent the weekend spending time with my roommate and her family. Here is we spent the weekend:
After two and a half days of exploring, it was finally time to settle in for another week of work and school. There were many other wonderful activities to do, there just wasn’t possibly enough time to do everything! Other families enjoyed the day by: bowling, hiking, riding the trolley, going to the magic show, watching the Midwest Dueling Pianos Show, shopping eating and spending time at other museums. Winona State parents and students are so fortunate to have so many great activities on the weekends both indoors and outdoors.
