BLOOMINGTON, Ill.— Illinois Wesleyan University will welcome Titan families Sept. 16-18 during Family Weekend. Activities include games, karaoke, football against North Central College, and entertainment by stunt comedian Wacky Chad, a former contestant on America’s Got Talent.

Wacky Chad’s award-winning pogo stick skills, charmingly funny jokes and antics twice helped him land on America’s Got Talent and at a Super Bowl performance. He has been voted a fan favorite for his mix of stand-up comedy, unusual tricks and stunts at schools, fairs, festivals, college campuses and other venues.

Tickets are $20 for each family member. The fee includes admission to “Nerdology” family trivia night on Friday, the football game, dinner on Saturday, and the Wacky Chad performance on Saturday evening. There is no fee for enrolled IWU students. Deadline for pre-registration is Sept. 9.

Other Family Weekend activities include performances by the University’s a capella student groups, late night board games, and receptions for the individual residence halls, Fraternity and Sorority Life, and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
