Alumni Family Weekend is an annual event for alumni and their children. The program lasts a day and a half and gives students and parents a chance to learn more about the admission process. We feature a panel discussion of admission deans from a host of colleges and universities, a workshop on effective essay writing and a mock evaluation of admission cases to give participants a better understanding of all the factors that affect an admission decision. Participation in the program has no bearing on a candidate’s admission to the University. We host the program because we think the weekend is informative and valuable for families engaged in the college search process.
