Family Weekend

Family Weekend

Join your fellow Lions and celebrate family during UAFS's annual Family Weekend! Family Weekend is a great way to experience your student and their life on campus. This year we have both in person and virtual programming opportunities from our annual Chili Cook-off to our Lion’s Virtual 5K – so there is something for everyone! Whether you participate virtually or in-person, we would love for you to share your photos and videos on social media with #UAFSFamilyWeekend.

  • Virtual Service Project: VocaliD

Give back this Family Weekend with a virtual family service project to lend your voice! VoicaliD allows you to record your voice, submitting it to a voicebank. Your voice is then paired with a recipient that relies on using a computer, or AI, to speak – allowing recipients to express themselves by matching their personality to their preferred voice in the voicebank.

Items needed: a quiet room to record your voice, access to a computer, and headphones with a microphone.
