It all starts Friday, Oct. 7 with check-in starting at 10 a.m. at Norris University Center. Families can enjoy refreshments while browsing through a complete schedule of weekend activities and Evanston guidebooks.

Families are then welcome to attend class with their student, attend seminars and take campus tours. Highlights of the weekend include a football game against Wisconsin, a performance by the student a cappella group Purple Haze, a gospel brunch and various other music and cultural events.

The Henry Crown Sports Pavilion, Norris Aquatics Center and Combe Tennis Center will be open to families for free use during the entire weekend.
