Fall Family Weekend
2016 Dates: October 7-9
Family members of our undergraduate students are invited for Fall Family Weekend (FFW) to enjoy activities and experience a slice of campus life. Class Reunion is the same weekend for 1976, 1986, 1991, 1996, 2006 and Gold Club - and FFW is complimentary for alum parents registered for the reunion. Registration for 2016 is just $45 for your family group, regardless of the size of your party (price increases to $60 on October 3).
The schedule begins to take shape in late April and May, with progress over the summer, and final touches in mid-September until the day we begin. Class visit options for Friday are posted the week prior to FFW. See the 2016 Highlights document (link on the left) for the efforts in progress. Here is a quick summary:
