Family Weekend | February 14-16, 2014

February 14-16, 2014


SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT (2/14/14)
The Dean's List Ceremony, originally scheduled for 10 a.m., has been moved to 12:30 p.m. in Seeger to allow for the clearing of roads and walkways from the overnight and early morning snow. We apologize for the confusion; we're trying to accommodate all needs, including safety, the travel plans of families, and the obligations of various participants during this very busy weekend when we're all struggling with changing weather conditions.


Family 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, gift from your hosts, and coupons for area attractions and restaurants.
