Clemson University Family Weekend is an annual tradition!

Please join us for the 2015 Family Weekend from September 11-13. This weekend combines a variety of social and educational opportunities throughout campus. Some of the things you will likely see at Family Weekend are a casual night out at Family Fest on our recreation beach, tailgating before the Clemson Tigers vs. Appalachian State Mountaineers football game, academic college receptions, open houses, drop-ins, educational sessions, full family photo ops and much, much more. This weekend has something for everyone! We hope to CU there!
