Eagles and Eaglets:
Eagles and Eaglets is H.O.M.E.’s family event group. It aims to create a more fulfilling college experience for student parents here at Eastern Washington University. Campus activities aimed at traditional students often leave student parents feeling out of place. Eagles and Eaglets activities are not only fun for kids, but also allow parents to expand their community by networking with other student parents who are experiencing the same challenges. Eagles and Eaglets events are fun for the whole family!
Past events include: pizza and craft night, family potluck, picnic in the park, visit to Mobius Kids children’s museum, and a day at Riverfront Park.
