Family Weekend

October 9-11, 2015

Family Weekend is an opportunity for families of Carleton students to experience the rich variety of activities on campus.

Come and get a taste of what your daughter or son is experiencing at Carleton. There will be tours, seminars, athletic competitions, performances, and art exhibitions. Attend a class. Eat lunch with students in the dining hall. Enjoy the beauty of the Arboretum or work out in the state-of-the-art Recreation Center.

When you arrive on campus, be sure to stop at the Hospitality Table inside Sayles-Hill Campus Center for refreshments and a final schedule.

Autumn is a particularly wonderful time to be on campus. We hope to see you here for Family Weekend!

If you’re planning ahead, future Family Weekends will take place October 14-16, 2016, and October 13-15, 2017.

(Family Weekend is scheduled to coincide with Alumni Homecoming, which is linked to a home football game.  Consequently, the dates do not occur at the same place in the academic calendar every year.)
