Family Weekend

Save this date: November 14 – 16, 2014.  Tulane’s Family Weekend is scheduled the same time as Homecoming and Alumni Reunions which makes for a very special community celebration for students, parents and alumni.

Our Family Weekend is a 3-day weekend of activities. Many events are free and open to students, parents and alumni. Students have a regular class day on that Friday, so we have some receptions and special offerings just for parents like faculty presentations and off-campus excursions mid-morning through late afternoon. Spirited Homecoming activities begin Friday afternoon through evening with a pep rally and music. The football game against the University of Memphis Tigers will occur in our new Yulman Stadium on Saturday. We usually keep our formal family programming on Sunday pretty light so that you can enjoy exploring our campus and the city with your student at your own pace. The online registration for ticketed events like the football game and off-campus excursions will open after August 20, 2014. Check back later for detailed schedules and program descriptions.

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