Registration and More Info
Some Fall Family Weekend events require advance registration.
Office of Student Leadership and Campus Programs
October 18 - 20, 2013
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 on campus and around Boston.
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 19. 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.
Fall Family Weekend is an opportunity to experience the change in your student and see first-hand the academic, social, and cultural quality of life in which they are immersed.
Come talk to the faculty and staff-important players in your student's success. Get a taste of the rich, interactive classroom experience and enjoy special family-themed events as your student takes you through the Wheelock campus and beautiful Boston.
Event Highlights and Registration
IMPORTANT NOTES FOR THIS WEEKEND:
- THIS JUST IN: The women's soccer game on Saturday, October 19 at 3:00pm will be played at Winsor Field (not Sweeney field). Winsor Field is right next to Wheelock...but due to construction, you will have to enter the field from the Longwood Avenue side.
- PLEASE NOTE: We regret to inform you that the Fall Rally athletics event scheduled for Saturday, October 19 at 9:00pm has been canceled. We apologize for any inconvenience.
We look forward to seeing many of you during Fall Family Weekend! We'd like to provide an update for you before you head over to our campus for Fall Family Weekend.
Some highlights of the weekend include:
- Breakfast with President Jackie Jenkins-Scott
- Mock classes
- Duck Tour
- Shear Madness

As you look at the schedule, you will notice several events have limited amount of space. We still have available spaces for Improv Asylum, Shear Madness, Breakfast with President Jackie Jenkins-Scott, and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. So sign up for tickets before it is too late!
If you plan on attending Saturday's breakfast at the President's House, a Trolley Service will be available to transport families from the main campus to President Jenkins-Scott's house and back. The Trolley starts at 8:15am and will leave from 55 Pilgrim Road (the "back" of campus, next to the employee parking garage).
For those who are not able or not interested in attending any of the Friday night events in Boston, Wheelock will be sponsoring its annual BINGO game at 8:00pm. There will be prizes—apparel, gift cards, electronic devices, 50/50 raffle!!
A hospitality table will be set-up throughout the weekend near the small café in the Campus Center Lobby. On Friday from 4 - 7 p.m., please stop by to have some coffee and snacks and ask any questions you may have about the weekend. Feel free to pick up a map of Boston, a city guide, a schedule of the weekend's events, and more.
