Families Weekend

Families Weekend, held every October, is a time for families to experience their own student’s world: from academics to athletics to co-curricular life. This weekend program give families a deep sense of the history that surrounds students; the strong connection between faculty and students in a liberal arts classroom; a time to rest, relax and reflect; as well as visit with students and their friends. It is truly a community-wide event.
