Parent and Family Events
University of Oregon Parent and Family Programs plans several large events on campus throughout the year to provide opportunities to visit your student and connect to the Duck community. We also participate in several events with campus partners to ensure that the parent and family experience is an exceptional one.
Thank you to all of the Parents and Families that attended Fall Family Weekend November 6-8! It was one of our favorite events that we have ever hosted and hope to see you all again at Winter Family Weekend February 19-21, 2016!

Some of our families choose to return to Eugene and visit their students during Spring Term. A popular weekend is the Spring Football Game weekend which is often paired with a home baseball game. Many of our fraternities and sororities also host parent and family events during that weekend. Although our Spring event is not an entire weekend, it does coincide with this popular weekend.
Dates for Spring Fall Weekend have yet to be determined. Our goal is to have an idea of what the weekend will look like by Winter term after the football schedule is announced.
