Parent & Family Programs is excited to announce some additional details about Family Weekend 2020. While the goals for Family Weekend – spend time with your student, explore Tuscaloosa, and learn more about UA traditions – will remain the same, in order to keep safety and well-being of UA families as our priority, Family Weekend 2020 will look a little different than in years past.

Instead of a weekend of large events, Family Weekend 2020 will offer a variety of virtual and self-guided experiences that you can participate in as a family while visiting your UA student. Families will be able to “choose your own adventure” to create the Family Weekend 2020 experience that best suits their interests.

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!
