Fall Family Weekend 2015
Office of Student Leadership and Campus Programs
October 16 - 18, 2015
An informed and supportive family plays an instrumental role in a student's educational, professional, and personal development and we have been excited to partner with you throughout your student's Wheelock experience. The more connected and engaged families are, the greater our students' success and graduation rates!
We consider Fall Family Weekend a time to honor parents, family members, and friends who help support our students through the ups and downs of college life. Enjoy your weekend! Spend quality time with your student, mingle with other families, experience first-hand your student's academic life, cheer at an athletics event. And don't forget that Boston is part of the Wheelock campus. See the sights! We hope you find opportunity to see a rich mix of the academic, cultural, and social quality of life offered on- and off-campus.
The 2015 Schedule will not be finalized until late summer. To give you an idea what to expect, here are a few highlights from past programs:
- Breakfast with President Jackie Jenkins-Scott
- Mini Classes
- Duck Tour
- Shear Madness
- Fenway Park Tour
- Wheelock Family Theatre Performance
- Family Dinners at Chart House and Lucia's Ristorante
