Family Weekends are a special part of the Ohio University experience.

"Our goal each year is to make sure the weekends are memorable for all parents and students. We want the family members of our students to feel welcome on campus."
In an effort to better coordinate and communicate events scheduled for Homecoming and Family Weekends, student organizations and University departments must register their events. Submitted event requests must include time, date, location, and event description to be considered for inclusion in the official schedule of events and related marketing materials. Should the event require tickets or charge for admission, please include that information with the event request.
