Family Weekend

It Won’t be the Same Without You!

We are pleased to invite you to come celebrate Family Weekend at Holy Cross, Friday, October 21 - Sunday, October 23, 2016. We hope you will join us on campus for this wonderful fall tradition! Come discover or enjoy again your student’s home away from home.

Family weekend is an enjoyable opportunity for parents, grandparents and siblings to see and learn about life at Holy Cross.  Be sure to check back as the weekend approaches for more information on activities and events that we’ve put together for you. Eat in historic Kimball Dining Hall, explore an art exhibit at the Cantor Art Gallery, take a tour, cheer at a game, attend Mass, and various other special programming.

Regardless of how you choose to spend your weekend, make sure you plan to spend it with your student here on the Hill. It just won’t be the same without you!
