How You Can Help - Protect the Herd

While we are excited to welcome everyone to Family Weekend, we recognize that COVID-19 is still active in our area. The health and safety of all of our participants is important, and we strongly advise that all participants take a COVID-19 rapid antigen test within 24 hours of arriving to campus and stay home if positive. We ask that anyone who feels ill or who is experiencing symptoms related to COVID-19 stay home. We strongly encourage mask use in indoor locations. A high-quality, well-fitted mask markedly increases protection against transmission of COVID-19 and other viruses.

Family Weekend Registration

Family Weekend registration is now closed. We welcome those who have registered to check in and those who would still like to participate to register on-site in the Rubin Campus Center Lobby upon arrival. While Family Weekend is a free event, some programs such as the weekend brunches, Big E! Trip, Food Trucks, and Paint Party require tickets to be purchased. All ticketed events are now closed, brunch tickets can be purchased at the door.

Family Weekend Schedule

We look forward to celebrating Family Weekend with you. Please find a schedule of events here.

When You Arrive on Campus

Stop in at the Campus Center (main floor lobby) to check-in/register and get the full schedule for the weekend. Check-in/registration takes place Friday from 2 pm to 7 pm, Saturday from 8:30 am to 4 pm, and Sunday from 9am to 1pm.

What to wear:  Dress casually and comfortably for this fun-filled weekend of activities.

Can our family attend ticketed events if we did not pre-order them? 

Unfortunately, all ticketed events required advanced registration. At times there may be tickets available at the door for some events; check at the Family Weekend registration table for details. Most events throughout the weekend, however, are unticketed and do not require any advance arrangements.
