UW Family Weekend Registration Underway

August 30, 2013

Activities both on campus and in the Laramie community are planned for Family Weekend Sept. 20-22 at the University of Wyoming.

Registrations are now being accepted for Family Weekend, which offers families an opportunity to share the UW experience and spend time with their students. Parents, grandparents, siblings and other family members of currently enrolled UW students are invited to visit the UW campus for an event-packed weekend.

Cowboy Parents and the UW Division of Student Affairs host Family Weekend.

Among activities scheduled are downtown and campus tours; receptions; a brunch hosted by UW President Bob Sternberg; a fun run; hikes in the surrounding area; evening events; a Wyoming Cowboys vs. Air Force watch party in the Wildcatter Suites at War Memorial Stadium; Cowboy Parents silent auction; and a Cowboy parents and alumni meet and greet. Times are yet to be determined for both the “watch party” and the Cowboy Parents silent auction, which will be held during the game. UW officials are still waiting for an official game time because of television obligations.

Cost for Family Weekend is $65 for adults; $35 for children 12 years and older; $25 for children ages 6-11; and free for children under age 5. Most events are free, but some activities require an additional fee.
