Parent Events

The Claremont McKenna College Parent Network invites you to stay connected with the activities of your student's College—on campus, at home, or when you travel. Cultural, sporting, and social events; faculty presentations; professional networking meetings; and community service projects… these are just some of the ways you can remain linked to the Parent Network and strengthen your bond with CMC.
