While Family Weekend may look different this year, we hope you are excited to take advantage of virtual and socially-distanced activities and experiences that we have available for your family whenever you may come visit your student! We understand that many families do not feel safe traveling to campus, while other families feel it is. For those who may not be planning to visit, we hope you will participate in the virtual activities that are offered.

Family Weekend is a “Choose Your Own Adventure” weekend with three main goals for UA families:

  • To reconnect and spend time with your UA student;
  • To experience UA traditions; and
  • To explore Tuscaloosa, your UA student’s new “home away from home.”

We hope you will enjoy a weekend of fun with your family and the UA family!
