Frequently Asked Questions
We utilize electronic communications through the parent newsletter, emails, and twitter posts. The schedule is updated on the website as activities are confirmed, with a highlights page available from mid-April to late summer to identify key activities.
Basketball team exhibitions (either men's or women's) is usually determined the first week of September, when our Athletics department has confirmation from the NCAA as to what is appropriate to offer. Typically, the experience is a non-ticketed exhibition event, open to the general public with open seating.
Student clubs generally need a couple of weeks to get going on the Fall semester before settling on an activity or fundraiser event, so we may not know about those until mid-September.
Activities are planned from Friday morning to Sunday mid-day.
Friday is generally the day to visit classes with your student, but there may be special club activities or sports on Friday afternoon. This might be the best day to enjoy the Jundt Museum exhibits, and we do feature a play on Friday evening, and you want to get tickets fast, as they always sell out before the weekend.
Saturday is the main activity day, featuring academic lectures and sessions, club activities -- depending upon what the students create, as well as music concerts, play performances, etc.
Sunday is light in terms of planned activities -- there are two morning masses available, and the BARC has a special price for breakfast. Rowing event and other sporting activities are common. And, a jazz concert!
The dress for this weekend is casual. Prepare for the likely potential of rainy weather!
The registration fee of $45 per family group creates a foundation for the Fall Family Weekend program, providing for materials and refreshments at check-in and several academic events. The fee also supports the faculty-parent wine and hors d’oeuvre reception, for which registration is required for entry. We are also able to underwrite costs for some club activities with these resources.
Fees are not based on the size of your family group. Bring as many visitors as you like to campus!
