Freshman Family and Parents Weekend

Spend a beautiful fall weekend on the IU Bloomington campus. This dual weekend is designed so IU students can share their IU experiences with their families and parents.

Freshman Family Weekend and Parents Weekend will both be held November 7-9, 2014 and will feature the IU vs Penn State football game. 

Freshman Family Weekend gives freshman students an opportunity to share IU traditions and discoveries with their families. Together you can explore IU’s academic spaces, tour campus and downtown Bloomington, tailgate before an IU football game, cheer on the Hoosiers, and enjoy a leisurely brunch before saying good-bye.

Parents Weekend is a weekend for parents and students to catch up, explore IU’s libraries and arts venues, have breakfast in the IMU’s Tudor Room, tailgate in Hoosier Village, and watch an IU football game together.
