We are thrilled to welcome parents, family members, and supporters of IC students to Ithaca College's Fall 2022 Family Weekend! With more than 30 events, from yard games to stargazing adventures, there is something for everyone. Families can also connect with faculty, staff, current students, and each other while learning more about the College’s academic and co-curricular offerings. For more details, visit the Schedule of Events page.  

This year's Family Weekend will be unlike any other, as it also coincides with the inauguration of Ithaca College's 10th president, Dr. La Jerne Terry Cornish. We are excited to have families and special guests join us as we usher in this exciting new chapter for IC with several inauguration festivities on Saturday - including fireworks!

Family Weekend is also hosting a Food and Supplies Drive for Prunty’s Pantry, Ithaca College’s on-campus food pantry that provides food, personal care items, and household paper products for campus community members in need. We will be collecting donations at the Campus Center Info Desk in Egbert Hall and hope to reach a total of 200 physical items collected and $500 in monetary donations – please consider bringing a donation! For more information about Prunty’s Pantry, including donation ideas, click here.

Folks can also learn more about the Ithaca College Family Council (ICFC), a group of volunteer parents and other family members who work with IC staff to ensure that families and students sustain connections with the College and with each other, access resources, and create relationships that foster successful transitions, student development, and IC community pride. ICFC members will be available at the Family Weekend check-in sessions and inauguration events to share their experiences and opportunities available with ICFC.

A special THANK YOU to all of our campus partners who have helped bring this exciting event to fruition! It's gearing up to be a very exciting weekend!
