We’re excited that Fall Family Weekend is almost here. Here’s what to know to ensure that both you and your student have an amazing time.
Our Fall Family Weekend is just around the corner, and we’d love to have you join us!
This year, Family Weekend will be held on October 17 and 18. Family weekend is always an exciting opportunity to get a peek into your child’s life at school and see first-hand how they’re adjusting and becoming part of the community. They’ll be able to introduce you to favorite faculty and new friends, show you around campus, and give you a sense of what life is like at Oliverian.
During Family Weekend, we invite you to join us for dinner Thursday night and to participate in a number of signature Oli activities — from sample classes to outdoor adventures — during the day on Friday. We’ll also hold a parents workshop with our team of counselors, during which you can connect with other parents and explore some concepts related to supporting your child’s Oliverian experience.
The weekend culminates with our famous students vs. faculty and parents soccer game — a highlight year after year. After the game, you’re welcome to take your student off campus for the rest of the weekend.
If this is your first Family Weekend, there are a few things you can do to ensure that both you and your student have an enjoyable and productive experience.
We know it can be difficult for families to make the trip, but we encourage you to join us if possible. Your student is going through an important transition in their life, and sharing in that — even for a few days — is a wonderful opportunity to see their growing independence.
It’s our hope that Family Weekend will also give you a better sense of your child’s daily life and help you feel reassured that they are fully supported on their path to success.
