Reasons to Attend
Meet your student's friends and their families.
Get to know UNL — including a tour of the football stadium!
Become part of your student's college experience.
This is a wonderful opportunity to see your student once he or she has gone off to college. Your student will have been at UNL long enough to tell you how things are going, what classes are like, and update you on new friends. During the weekend, you'll have an opportunity to catch up, participate in fun activities, meet other UNL families and create memories together.
All family members can attend the weekend. However, please note that there is a lot of walking. In case you have a very small child or someone who may need assistance with walking, you may find a stroller or wheelchair to be helpful.
