Calling All Families!

Shine Your Light: Brandeis University Family Weekend October 25-27 Twenty NineteenOctober 25-27, 2019

Participating in Family Weekend is the perfect opportunity to connect with your student(s) and explore our vibrant campus community.

We'll kick off the weekend with a welcome reception and mind-blowing presentation by Craig Karges - who combines the art of magic, science of psychology and the power of intuition to create the impossible.

The weekend includes a variety show to showcase our talented students, off-campus excursions to Plymouth and Concord, MA, the Student Union's Pumpkin Fest 2019, lots of hands-on fall fun, and so much more!

We hope you'll join us to experience a taste of life at Brandeis!
