Family Weekend & Events


Family Weekend 2014
September 19th - 21st

Family Weekend is a weekend’s worth of events and activities that give families a chance to spend time with each other and show their Cougar Pride! You can count on being able to see the football team in action on Saturday afternoon and the opportunity to see some of the sights in Chicago in the evening. In 2010, Family Weekend participants saw famous architectural landmarks while on a cruise of the Chicago River and Lake Michigan shoreline and in past years participants toured downtown Chicago in a double-decker bus. Family Weekend concludes with brunch and Resurrection service in the Chapel on Sunday.
