Special Family Weekend Events

We are offering the following events as webinars prior to the start of Family Weekend so that all families may participate in what promise to be two enlightening and informative evenings.


COVID-19 Guidelines

All in-person Family Weekend attendees will be required to be fully vaccinated. Testing will not be required prior to arrival. The Family Weekend registration form will include a declaration of COVID-19 vaccination. Family members will be welcome in all campus buildings, including the dorms! All participants must remain masked indoors. We strongly encourage students to remain masked indoors when they are off campus. Testing will be conducted upon students' return to campus.
