Join Us for Fall Family Weekend
October 27-29, 2017
Fall Family Weekend is hosted each fall and creates opportunities for you to visit campus, support your student, and experience the Duck lifestyle. The Parent and Family Programs team works hard to provide many opportunities for you to design your experience with a combination of open classes, athletic events, and Homecoming activities.
For our first-year families, Fall Family Weekend occurs at the end of a very crucial period in your student's time at the University of Oregon. We encourage our parents and families to join us for Fall Family Weekend to celebrate your student's success and see them in their day-to-day environment.
Some of the highlights you will experence at Fall Family Weekend 2017 include:
- Open Classes
- Quackfest: An innovation and entrepreneuership
- Craft Center Workshops
- Volleyball Game
- Football Game
- Football Pre-Game Experience at the Moshavsky Center
- Informational Sessions on Student Success, Safety, Getting Involved, Global Citizenship, Financial Aid and Scholarships
- Free access all weekend to the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, Museum of Natural and Cultural History, and Student Recreation Center
Planning Your Stay
For those of you planning your travel, most families arrive Friday morning and leave Sunday morning. While you certainly are welcome to stay longer and check out all Eugene has to offer, we purposely focus most of our programming on Friday and Saturday.
Gametime for the football game will not be determined six to ten days prior to Saturday, October 28th. We will let all attendees know when kickoff time has been announced.
Remember that hotel accomodations fill up quickly during family weekend, so we encourage families to make arrangements as early as possible. There are still several hotels and motels that are offering reduced rate accomodations for Fall Family Weekend families.
