Welcome Home Family & Friends Weekend brings families back to campus

October 13, 2017 | Tags: College & Campus

When Brianna Bunker began looking at colleges, she searched for a small school in a hip university town that also offered her major, digital filmmaking. Her dad found Stephens College, which had an added bonus in his eyes: it’s a women’s college. Today, Daryl and Sarah Bunker of Lumberton, Texas, are visiting their daughter during Welcome Home Family & Friends Weekend at Stephens. Though she’s only a couple months into her freshman year, Brianna Bunker couldn’t be happier – and neither could her parents.
