VCU Family Weekend 2015

Oct. 23-25

Family Weekend is an exciting opportunity to see and experience your student’s campus life, meet their friends and other families, and just enjoy the VCU community.

If it’s been a while since you toured campus, or this will be your first time visiting, you’ll be well-acquainted by the time you leave. There are a ton of fun activities and events planned, along with a whole host of things happening in Richmond.

Check the links at the left for more info, a list of events, registration (required for some events) and to find out what to do and where to go. If you did not RSVP, you are still welcome to come to campus for Family Weekend. Stop by the check-in table to let us know you're here to receive the Family Weekend packet. We hope to see you here!

Questions? Contact the Office of New Student and Family Programs at or call (804) 828-3700.
