Frequently Asked Questions
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.
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 , and registration is required for entry. We are also able to underwrite costs for some club activities with these resources. New this year - fees are not based on the size of your family group. Bring as many visitors as you like to campus! Thank you for your participation and support.
Our Li'l Bulldogs program requires a fee this year, so that we can support the program with adequate staffing and age-appropriate activities.
Come to the Foley Library entrance -- we are in the atrium area, next to a giant pumpkin and photo backdrop set up for you to enjoy.

The Li'l Bulldogs program, where children 3-10 can join a group of student volunteers for crafts and a movie on Saturday morning between 9am and 12noon is designed to give families an opportunity to enjoy the academic sessions. Otherwise, younger members are welcome all across campus.
