Family Weekend 2016_Page_1Family Weekend is an opportunity for parents and siblings to see what college life is like, as well as to tour and explore the Tri-Cities area. On campus events are planned throughout the weekend, but families are encouraged to do some sightseeing in the local area as well. There is no required pre-registration but be sure to stop by registration in the SUB for your registration packet, a gift from your hosts, and coupons for area attractions and restaurants.
