What is Family Weekend?

Family Weekend is an informative, engaging and important yearly tradition! Over the course of the Weekend, Duke welcomes parents and families to visit campus in order to interact with the organizations, people and places that have become so important to your student.

This year, we look forward to topical and interesting programs by staff, presentations from faculty, and interactions with special members of the student community.

When is Family Weekend?

Family Weekend 2018 will be held October 19-21. 

How do I register for Family Weekend?

Registration will be available August 15th. Stay tuned to this page for additional details.

Why should I attend Family Weekend?

In addition to the opportunity to experience programs, discussions, concerts, performances and more from members throughout the Duke community, attending Family Weekend also provides a wonderful chance for you to spend quality time with your student. Not only does it strengthen your relationship, but it can also provide your son or daughter with the opportunity to bridge the gap between their lives both on and away from campus.
