Welcoming Wildcat parents and families

Mark your calendars now and stay tuned to this page for further updates.

Schedule

Friday, April 26

2 - 5 p.m. Welcome table | Riley Hall
Stop by the welcome table in Riley Hall to pick up schedules or maps. Feel free to ask the staff for recommendations of things to do or places to eat.
2 p.m. Softball Game vs. George Fox University
Cheer on Wildcat's softball team as they take on George Fox. Enjoy the game at Del Smith Stadium. 
5- 7 p.m. Explore downtown McMinnville
Linfield is so lucky to have a home in the heart of McMinnville and Yamhill County. Spend an hour or two exploring downtown. Merchants are eager to welcome you. Have some bubble tea at the Velvet Monkey, find your next great read at Third Street Books, unearth a treasure at Oodles or Bella Casa, or simply scout out a restaurant, brewery or winery to try later.
7:30 p.m. The Imaginary Invalid | Marshall Theater
Linfield Theatre’s April production will be a new take on Moliere’s The Imaginary Invalid, adapted by Oded Gross and Tracy Young, with original music by Paul James Prendergast and original lyrics by Oded Gross, Paul James Prendergast & Tracy Young. Moliere’s final play follows the story of Argan, a hypochondriac who seeks to marry his daughter to the son of a doctor, which he believes will mean cheaper medical bills and easier access to prescriptions. Mistaken identity, subterfuge, and other classic tropes of comedy ensue, and this zippy production contains side–splitting wordplay, slapstick gags, and a healthy dose of pop culture references.

Performance dates are April 18–20 and April 25–26 at 7:30 p.m. and April 28 at 2 p.m. Tickets will go on sale April 3. (Please note there will not be a performance on April 27.)

Tickets are $12 for full price; $10 for seniors (62+) and Linfield faculty and staff (two tickets per ID); and $8 for students 16+ (any school, one ticket per ID).

11 a.m. Faculty mini-talks | Riley 201
Attend a sample class. Three Linfield professors have agreed to give a 15-minute lecture. We promise you will not be tested! But you just might learn something.
1 p.m. Lacrosse Game vs. Puget Sound University | Soccer/Lacrosse Field

Yamhill County is home to nearly 100 wineries. Join a group of Linfield parents and a Linfield administrator for a tasting at Linfield’s own tasting room, the Acorn to Oak Wine Experience in downtown McMinnville.
7 p.m. Annual lu’au and ho’ike
The student performances continue to be campus and community favorites each year. The Lu'au features dances from the Hawaiian Islands as well as New Zealand, Tahiti and Samoa. The show is put on by Linfield students who will dance hula, play Hawaiian music and share the Hawaiian culture with you.
