Parent and Family Weekend General Schedule

Parent & Family Weekend 2018 Schedule

(October 26-28)

Parent and Family Weekend is a time for families to visit their students and get a small glimpse into their lives. Over the course of the weekend, we have a handful of fun activities planned for you and your students to participate in. Many families choose to sign up for several events hosted by the Parent and Family Program, however it is not required of any individual to sign up for any or all events this weekend. Below is a generalized schedule of the weekend activities available to all registered families!

Friday, October 26- Check-in will occur throughout the afternoon with selected Education Sessions. Please note that the Gopher Football game will be on Friday night! (time TBD)

Saturday, October 27- Educational Sessions will be hosted throughout the day with a variety of additional events available on campus and in the community. Other activities will include a special event for families of out-of-state students and a happy hour mixer open for registration to all families. 

Sunday, October 28- Activities a the University of Minnesota RecWell will be available to families, including a Sunday Send Off during he morning hours.

As you consider travel plans, feel free to travel when it makes the most sense for you and your family. If you plan to attend the Gopher Football game on Friday evening, you will want to plan to arrive by mid-afternoon on Friday. Many families use Sunday as a travel home day. While we do have programming on Sunday, it is minimal to accommodate families who need to travel.
