Mark your calendars now with the just-announced dates of Ohio University's fall 2009 family weekend and Homecoming celebration. They are:
- Homecoming Weekend: Oct. 16-18, 2009
- Fall Parents Weekend: Oct. 23-25, 2009
Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs Anne Lombard knows family weekends and Homecoming are special moments for the university community.
"Both parents and students look forward to our annual family weekends because they represent a special time on campus where bonding takes place and unforgettable memories are made," Lombard said. "Student Affairs takes great pride in hosting family weekends because of their great traditions and the vibrant atmosphere they create."
And with today's busy lifestyles, time spent with family and friends is the best sort of investment.
"From parents to siblings -- recreation time spent with family is often the most valued time in a person's life," Lombard said, "and that is what these weekends provide."
Family weekends for winter and spring 2010 will be announced at a later date.
