Annual Family Programs

Regatta Family Breakfast

The 9th Annual Regatta and Family Breakfast took place on September 23, 2017. Thank you to all the family members, supporters, and students who participated this year!

Each year, we encourage families and supporters to join your IUPUI student on the canal for the Annual IUPUI Regatta. Throughout the day, attendees enjoy the thrills and spills of IUPUI’s largest student-run campus event. 150 teams and thousands of people line the banks of the downtown Indianapolis Canal for what proves to be a wet and wild time. 

In 2017, we had over 160 family members and students attend the Regatta Family Breakfast. There are many memories from the day. A Jaguar spirit basket raffle took place for those who donated during the Paw’s Pantry food drive. Families showed off their IUPUI knowledge in the Jaguar trivia contest. Some participants stayed for the Regatta canoe race heats and raced the Parent and Family Programs rubber duck at the Division of Student Affairs resource table.
