Join us for Family Weekend 2019

November 8th - 10th

Every fall, Family Weekend provides a chance for families to visit students for a fun-filled weekend on the Ithaca College campus. This is a great time to experience college through your student's eyes, and for your student to show you why they love Ithaca.

You'll have the opportunity to...

  • Listen to a welcome by College President Shirley M. Collado
  • Celebrate in the campus center with student performances and desserts
  • Enjoy a fabulous fireworks display over South Hill
  • Explore campus and partake in local fall activities
  • Attend a Farewell Brunch with your student

The weekend is designed to help you discover what Ithaca College has to offer and learn about the organizations, people, and places that have become home to your student.  

Family Weekend 2019 is scheduled for November 8-10, 2019. Events will begin late afternoon on November 8 and will continue through the early afternoon of Sunday, November 10. Most events will be scheduled for Saturday, November 9. A full schedule of events can be found here
