Parent and Family Weekend 2019

If you have a family member who is a student at FVSU, you’re invited to spend a special weekend getting a taste of the FVSU experience.  Attend FVSU’s Parent and Family Weekend, and meet senior administrators, attend a game, see the nationally-renowned Blue Machine Marching Band, and take advantage of opportunities to help your student build their professional wardrobe (and do a little shopping of your own!). Check in with them without checking up on them.

They may have left home, but there will always be a special connection with you. Now that your loved one is part of the FVSU family, you are too. At FVSU, family is everything.
