Fall Family Weekend 2012: October 19 - 21
Office of Student Leadership and Campus Programs
Check out the 2012 Fall Family Weekend schedule! This schedule is tentative and subject to change.
We have an exciting weekend planned that will provide you with opportunities to visit with your Wheelock student, meet members of the faculty and staff, and enjoy special events in Boston and on-campus.
You will notice that most of the events are free. We particularly want to highlight Breakfast at the President's House on Saturday morning, October 20. All families are invited to enjoy not only a fine meal but also a candid conversation with our President and with an excellent panel of alumni students.
We have also organized some activities in which tickets must be purchased in advance. Because of their popularity each year, we continue to include options such as Shear Madness, Duck Tours, and a performance from our own Wheelock Family Theatre. We are pleased to announce that we will once again offer a trip to the Museum of Fine Arts on Friday night, October 19, and a wonderful dinner package at Jasper White's Summer Shack on Saturday, October 20. Tickets for these options are limited and non‑refundable.
