Family Weekend is an opportunity for Marauder parents to connect with their student(s) on campus, learn more about ways to get involved and enjoy family fun. Marauder Family Weekend will occur on Friday, Sep. 22 and Saturday, Sep. 23.
“One of the things we wanted to focus on this year is thinking about engaging events that would get all different types of participants out,” says J. Whitlow, director of Campus Life. Especially since it falls on a weekend, we still wanted to engage our students who are on campus and may not have their parents or families coming in.”
Highlights include free tethered hot air balloon rides and a comedy show from MU alumnus Jonathan Burns. Attendees are encouraged to stop by the hospitality suite for a full schedule, offers and deals from campus partners and resources about local restaurants and activities nearby!
Events will occur around the clock on Friday and Saturday. Some of the main events from the weekend include:
- 9:15 a.m. – 9:45 a.m. Discover Lancaster
