Each year Family Weekend offers families an opportunity to share in the UW experience and spend time with their own special student. Parents, grandparents, siblings, and other family members of currently enrolled UW students are invited to visit the UW-Laramie campus for an event-packed, memory making weekend! Family Weekend is hosted by Cowboy Parents and the UW Division of Student Affairs.
