Reasons to Attend
1) Meet your student's friends and their families.
2) Get to know the university — including a tour of the football stadium!
3) Become part of your student's college experience.
This is a wonderful opportunity to see your student once they have gone off to college. Your student will have been at the university 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 Husker 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.
Activities are free of charge unless otherwise noted.
Hotel room blocks have been arranged at local hotels near the Lincoln airport, in the Haymarket as well as in Downtown Lincoln (all near campus). To access the special Family Weekend rates, you must register to participate in Family Weekend. There is no registration fee. Your registration confirmation email will provide you with hotel information and links to reserve rooms. Please note that hotel rooms must be booked prior to August 30 at 5 p.m. to secure discounted University rates. Hotel room availability is not guaranteed, so please reserve your room early.
