Family Weekend runs Sept. 27-29 with full schedule of events

Registration remains open at the Koury Athletic Center on Friday from 3-7 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. - 1 p.m.

From a football game to concerts to breakfast with the president, Family Weekend promises something for everyone this month as parents and relatives of current students visit campus for a unique Elon University experience.

Families will be able to meet their students' faculty members, attend a mini-class, spend time with their students tailgating, and cheer on the Phoenix at Saturday's football game against Coastal Carolina at 1:30 p.m.

Registration is required for most events and three programs - a Friday golf tournament, the family picnic on Saturday and the Collage concerts on both Friday and Saturday evenings - are sold out. A full listing for those who have registered is available at www.elon.edu/familyweekend.

Online registration has been closed but families will be able to register in person on Friday from 3-7 p.m. in the Koury Athletic Center, or on Saturday from 8 a.m. - 1 p.m. in the same location.
