    Registration for Family and Friends Weekend begins on Thursday, Aug. 1, 2019 and closes on Friday, Sept. 20, 2019 at 5 p.m. If you do not register prior to this, walk-in registration will be available in Registration Central in Charles L. Tutt Library (first floor, west side) on Friday, Sept. 27 from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. and on Saturday, Sept. 28 from 9 a.m.-noon.

    We highly recommend that you speak with your student regarding their academic or other commitments (exams, projects, field trips, sports events, etc.) and coordinate your planned activities prior to registering. Students are not “automatically” registered for the weekend. If your student will join you for any of the events, please ensure that you include their name with your registration.
