NOTE: PFA cards and how they work for our Weekend Events:
If you attended orientation over the summer or renewed your membership, you have or will soon receive your Parent and Family Association Card (valid through August 2018). Membership is individually based. Each membership card ONLY admits one parent/family member (each member does get the benefit of bringing a sibling 18 years or younger) in addition to themselves, however this must be communicated to firstname.lastname@example.org for the weekend events. Each member must present their card at the check-in table for every event during the weekend to verify current membership: Friday night Hospitality Check-In Soiree, Saturday Tailgate and Sunday Brunch. If you are bringing your KSU student to an event, they must present their valid KSU Identification card as well. These steps ensure a swift and easy check in process for all. ONLY valid PFA members will receive a Parent and Family Weekend long-sleeve tshirt, while supplies last.
PFA Members: Don't forget to visit PFA Benefit Partners during Parent and Family Weekend for special discounts. View the Benefits Partners HERE.
For each of these hotels, please call and ask for the KSU discounted rate, based upon availability.
