Thanks for Joining Us for Fall Family Weekend
Fall Family Weekend 2018 will be hosted November 2–4. Please make your lodging accomodations now as football weekends fill up very quickly in Eugene. Expect registration to be available in summer 2018.
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.
A full schedule of events will be provided to families via email and at check-in.
Some of the highlights of Fall Family Weekend 2017 included:
- Open Classes
- University of Oregon Innovation Summit
- Craft Center Workshops
- Volleyball Pre-Game Experience
- Volleyball Game
- Football Pre-Game Experience at the Moshofsky Center
- Football Game
- 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 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.
Game time for the football game will not be determined until 6-10 days prior to game day. 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 soon as possible. Our partners at Travel Lane County have contacted hotels offering special rates to participants in Fall Family Weekend. If you are interested in these rates, you can find more information here.
