Family Weekend 2014 set for Sept. 19-21

Registration for the weekend opens Monday, Aug. 11, with opportunities for family members of all ages to take part in festivities across campus.

Elon's Family Weekend 2014 will be held Sept. 19-21.

The Elon community will welcome families to campus Sept. 19-21 for a weekend of football, fun and fellowship. Families who participate in the weekend’s events will have the opportunity to hear a university update, meet faculty members, experience a mini-class and enjoy breakfast with President Leo M. Lambert and wife Laurie Lambert at Maynard House.

Families on campus for the weekend can also attend Elon’s first Family Weekend football game to be televised, as the Phoenix take on UNC Charlotte at 7 p.m. in Rhodes Stadium. The game will be preceded by a tailgate party on the promenade at Elon’s new Global Neighborhood and the Phoenix Walk, which gives fans the chance to cheer on the Phoenix football team as they make their way to the stadium led by Elon’s marching band and cheerleaders.

Saturday will also feature a special session for siblings of fun and games as well as bus tours and seminars designed just for grandparents.

Registration for Family Weekend opens Monday, Aug. 11 at 12 p.m. EDT. For more information or to view a full schedule of the weekend’s events, visit the Family Weekend website.
