Helpful Tips for Parents:

1. Make your hotel or B&B reservations today!  Space is limited. View Hamilton Area Lodging on Quick Links for a list of surrounding options.  

2. When planning your trip or booking your flights - the Family Weekend officially kicks off with (optional) Friday morning classes followed by faculty, staff, and student led discussions beginning around 2 p.m.  Performances and receptions typically begin at 4 p.m. through 10 p.m. There are a few athletic events and religious services held on Sunday however; most of the Family Weekend events are on Friday and Saturday.

3. The final Family Weekend 2012 schedule will be finalized in late September. We allow ample time for the Colgate community to settle into the fall semester and submit events for the weekend. To have a better idea what to expect from the weekend click on the 2011 schedule below. Schedules may vary.
