Save the Date for Family Weekend

This past year has been incredibly challenging for everyone – our students, families, faculty, staff, and community. However, from challenges come innovation, persistence, courage, and creativity. From this, Family Programs looks toward the 2021-2022 academic year and how we can engage new and continuing families as well as all of you.

Please save the date for Family Weekend taking place October 15-17, 2021. Family Weekend is an annual, university-wide celebration that provides our community with the opportunity to connect, celebrate what it means to be a Patriot, and make new memories, which is why our program will include events for Mason students, adults, and children of all ages, as well as Mason faculty and staff. We are optimistic for the fall as we plan an in-person experience with virtual offerings that will feature the best of Mason.

Please mark this date on your calendar, help us spread the word, and/or contact the Family Programs team with any questions: Rebecca McCrory (rstauffa@gmu.edu), Daylen Orlick (dorlick@gmu.edu) and Samaria Moss (smoss6@gmu.edu).

Stay tuned to MasonFamily.gmu.edu/FamilyWeekend and follow New Student and Family Programs socials for the most up-to-date information (@MasonNSFP on Instagram and Facebook). We look forward to welcoming your Mason family to Family Weekend 2021!
