FALL 2019 PHOENIX FAMILY DAY
On Saturday, October 19 students and parents of Florida Polytechnic University came together for the fall Phoenix Family Day. From a barbeque lunch with President Randy K. Avent to the new oak grove student hangout space ribbon-cutting ceremony, it was a day to make memories with the whole Phoenix family.
Proud students showed off the Florida Polytechnic University campus to their families and relaxed at the fall Phoenix Family Day on Saturday, Oct. 19.
About 300 people who braved a drizzly morning for a chance to have another up-close look at the campus and the resources available to students.
Cloudy skies didn’t keep the cheerful crowd from joining in fun activities at the Student Development Center, such as giant Jenga, board games, and watching a performance by the student drumline.
After a barbecue lunch, the families joined Dr. Randy K. Avent, Florida Poly’s president, in officially opening Oak Grove, a new outdoor space designed to be a relaxing spot for students to gather and socialize.
The Oak Grove is one of several major growth plans on Florida Poly’s horizon, including the coming Applied Research Center, a future Student Achievement Center, and a robust research park.
