Parent and Family Engagement

Family Weekend

  • For one weekend in autumn, parents are our special guests. Please join us for Family Weekend.

    We have planned a perfect weekend, with a variety of events for you to enjoy with your student. Family Weekend is a great way to get to know your son's or daughter's friends and professors, and to meet other parents.

    Whether your student is a freshman or senior, Family Weekend is a great way to discover the place your son or daughter calls home.

    The Seattle University Choir will have a special concert on Friday night. Saturday morning, participate in an engaging discussion about our distinctive focus on learning at Seattle University.

    Don't miss the ever popular dinner show on Saturday or the Sunday morning brunch with the Jesuits. Whether you participate in every activity, or only a few, please plan to join your son or daughter, their friends and others for a fantastic weekend. Family Weekend has something to suit every family's taste. 


    Family Weekend 2016 will be held October 21-23, 2016.  Invitations/ reservation information to Family Weekend 2016 will be sent via email in mid-September.

    Sample Family Weekend activities from previous years include student choir concerts, legacy pinning ceremony, an academic keynote, athletic events, brunch with the Jesuits, a family mass, campus garden tour and presentations from various departments/offices.
