Family & Friends Weekend
September 25th – 27th
Family and Friends Weekend has been a celebrated tradition at the University of Maine for many years. For many of our students, this special weekend is the first opportunity to visit with family and friends since Maine Hello. Within the first month of the semester, your UMaine student has started to create their college experience. This exciting weekend presents an important opportunity for families and friends to share firsthand in their student’s UMaine experience.
To demonstrate how your students have become involved on campus, we have partnered up with various departments and groups on campus to provide an event filled weekend with fun, food, entertainment, and more! There will be numerous opportunities to interact with UMaine staff, and to take part in the diverse recreational activities the campus has to offer.
We know that our students look forward to showing off the campus and sharing their achievements with their loved ones. Please accept our invitation and join us for this year’s Family and Friends Weekend. We look forward to your visit!
Mark your calendars and book your hotel! Our local accommodations will begin filling up during the summer!
