Family Weekend 2014

Family Weekend is a campus-wide celebration of families that runs concurrent with Homecoming. We have a series of intellectual, informational, and social events planned for you in the hopes that you will experience, if only for a brief weekend, what it means to be a Columbia University student.

Family Weekend 2014 programming on our Morningside Heights campus will begin midday Friday, October 24, and continue through Saturday, October 25. No formal programming is scheduled on Sunday, October 26, to allow family time, and a la cart options will be offered throughout the weekend* in addition to general programming.
