Throughout the day, there were shuttles to local areas such as downtown New Haven, downtown West Haven, SkyZone Trampoline Park, the Pez Factory in Orange, Conn., and more.  Sign-ups for the trip were done after check in.

Many events took place on campus as well.  Some were specifically for freshman families.  The Office of Residential Life conducted events for the Living Learning Communities including tie-dye, meet-and-greet, and other various activities, depending on the LLC.

SCOPE participated with an event called Inflatable Fun Fest.  The Bixler/Botwinik Quad was filled with inflatable obstacle courses and bounce houses, which ran for students and families of all ages from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Many performances, crafts, and demonstrations went on throughout campus during the day.

One activity included an Interactive Animal Exhibit in the German Club, featuring creatures from the Animal Embassy.  The animals on display included an exotic bird and some reptiles.  One reptile, a tortoise, was freely roaming near the stage of the German Club.

At the Westside Hall patio, there was a sophomore exclusive event called “Snacks for Sophomores,” in which the sophomore class got food while meeting with the sophomore year experience crew.

One of the main events was the Chargers Football Game against American International College from Springfield, Mass.  Kick off was at 1 p.m.  The Chargers won 31-12 with their season record being 2-1.

The Women’s Soccer team also had a game against AIC which started at 7 p.m. The Chargers lost 0-3, with a season record of 4-2.

Family Day at UNH was yet another successful day to spend time with family and explore many aspects of campus.
