2015 Family Weekend - October 30 - November 1

Information regarding events will be finalized by October 1.

“F” is for Fall, Families, and Fredonia!
We encourage your family to come visit your student on one of the most exciting weekends of the academic year.   There are hundreds of memories to be made while cheering in the bleachers, clapping in the theater, celebrating a scholarship, or exploring the best the season has to offer at the many area attractions in Chautauqua County.

This weekend is all about your family enjoying each other’s company at your own pace. There is no mandatory registration process. Families are invited to participate at their own convenience. Please note some events listed below are ticketed and sold on a first come-first serve basis. If there is a ticketed event your family would like to attend, we encourage you to purchase your tickets as far in advance as possible.

Should you have any questions or concerns about your visit, please contact the Campus Life Office at (716) 673-3143.
