Family Weekend and Homecoming are two beloved traditions at UChicago that bring together students, parents, College alumni, and others from all over the University community. Highlights from the multi-day festivities include food and photo booths, the annual Tug-of-War tournament and banner competition between College houses, a swim and dive meet, the Homecoming football game and athletics award ceremony, a choral concert at Rockefeller Chapel, and a spectacular Halloween concert jointly presented by the UChicago Symphony Orchestra and the Hyde Park School of Dance. Students take this time to enjoy the campus with their family members and friends, and they often help put on one or more of the events. As is the case every year, there was much cheering, many happy reunions, and plenty of smiles to go around.
