It's Family Weekend Now

Tailgating in the FallThe name of Iowa’s traditional Parents Weekend has been changed to Family Weekend following a unanimous student vote. "We still will be honoring parents and aiming activities at them, but we wanted to include nontraditional families, siblings, and grandparents in the mix," says Julie Williams, Alumni Association coordinator.

On Saturday, the Hawkeye football team will be playing Ohio State. Family Weekend also offers a chance to see your student, attend the Stepping Up tailgate, talk with President Mary Sue Coleman, and participate in a number of other activities.

This year the weekend is Oct. 20-22. Information packets will be mailed to you in early September. Look for special information on hotel reservations.
