Family Weekend

Tulane’s Family Weekend is scheduled for November 14 – 16, 2014, the same time as Homecoming and Alumni Reunions which makes for a very special community celebration for students, parents and alumni. Some events require advance registration and a fee payment, but many events are free and open to students, parents and alumni.


Our Family Weekend includes 3 days of activities:

Friday: Students have a regular class day on Friday, so we have special offerings in the afternoon just for parents like faculty lectures, department open houses and off-campus excursions. Spirited Homecoming activities begin late afternoon Friday with a pep rally and music on the quad. Don’t miss our Family Weekend A Cappella Concert at 9 pm in McAlister Auditorium.

Saturday: The big event Saturday is the football game against the University of Memphis Tigers in our new Yulman Stadium.

Sunday: We usually keep our formal programming on Sunday pretty light so that you can enjoy exploring our campus and the city with your student at your own pace. For fun ideas, check out our list of links to New Orleans tours, attractions and sites.

Be sure to use Tulane’s Travel Portal to book your hotel and ground transportation arrangements to take advantage of special discounts.

For questions, please e-mail or call 1-877-TUP-WAVE.
