Family Weekend

Held each fall semester, Family Weekend offers opportunities for students and their loved ones to spend quality time together enjoying campus and community.

Family Weekend 2022: October 21–23

Most Family Weekend events take place on Friday evening and throughout Saturday. Sunday is a day that families use for casual visiting amongst themselves. 

There is no charge to attend Family Weekend, but we do ask families to register.

Registration typically opens early in the fall semester.
