The Owl Parent Association (OPA) invites you to join us for the 6th Annual Spring Fling Parent & Family Weekend which will take place February 20-21, 2015. This is a great excuse for you to visit with your student again and network with other parents.

The Owl Parent Association will make a huge announcement you don’t want to miss at the Semi-Annual General Meeting. In addition, more information is extended to our parents at this meeting regarding the OPA Mentoring Program, upcoming Summer Send-Offs and our first ever Welcome Academy… as an OPA member, you don’t want to miss this meeting!

During the weekend, FAU will offer events including attending some of FAU athletics’ home games such as Basketball and Baseball and other events hosted by the OPA. Last year’s Spring Fling was a smashing success and a lot of fun! We had “Brunch on the Beach” and attended FAU Baseball and Basketball games.   Chances to win scholarships are offered to Owl Parent Association members for their students.
