Family Weekend

Join your fellow Lions on Oct. 28-29 for UAFS's 2022 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 5K – so there is something for everyone! We would love for you to share your photos and videos on social media with #UAFSFamilyWeekend.


Do you have an amazing family or support system? Nominate them for our first-ever UAFS Family of the Year Award. Created by the UAFS Student Government Association, the Family of the Year Award will be presented during the Chili Cook-off Tailgate on Saturday, Oct. 29.

Nominate your Family of the Year
