Marauder Family Weekend 2019
Marauder Family Weekend
An early chance to re-connect.
Marauder Family Weekend is scheduled for Friday, September 13 and Saturday, September 14, 2019. This will provide first-year parents with an opportunity to re-connect with their student early in the semester (and perhaps bring another car-load of items with them!). Programming on Friday will not start until the early evening, giving you the opportunity to arrive throughout the day. Formal programming on Saturday will conclude in the early evening, giving those living within driving distance the opportunity to head home that day.

Coming from out of town?
If you are coming from out of town and looking for a place to stay, check out the suggested lodging on the Admissions Office pages.
Looking for a place to eat?
Quite often, one of the highlights of a visit by family is an opportunity for the student to enjoy a meal off-campus. Download this list for some great local recommendations!
Do I need to sign up?
No. There is no registration for the weekend itself. Events requiring the purchase of tickets are identified as such in the schedule. Other events are offered free of charge.
Do I need a parking pass?
No. Parking on the University campus is unmonitored from 4 p.m. on Fridays until 7 a.m. on Mondays. This means that cars are not ticketed for not displaying a University parking decal or pass during this time.
