Family Weekend

The College will not be hosting an in-person Family Weekend program to protect the health and wellbeing of all University community members and visitors due to the coronavirus (COVID-19). We recognize that this is disappointing news and we thank you for your understanding and flexibility.

We hope you will still join us on October 16 and 17 for a virtual weekend of events to mark the occasion and to honor parents, grandparents, and all extended family in our community.

Registration is now open!
