UNLV Family Network

The UNLV Family Network is a support and networking program for UNLV family to connect with each other and the university through a variety of events and activities. You will receive a newsletter and a chance to connect to campus through volunteer opportunities.

Rebel Ready Week

We encourage parents and families to join us during Rebel Ready Week for Family Day each August. The event is free and registration is required.

Programming includes attending a college welcome with your student, a family lunch with UNLV campus leaders, and family-specific programming about student success. Other sessions cover the first-year experience, financial aid, and philanthropy and alumni engagement. You'll meet back up with your student for a send-off at the end of the day.
