Thank you for joining us for Family Weekend 2013!
What is Family Weekend?
We invite all family members to take part in Family Weekend, a traditional event that occurs in the Fall Semester. Family members connect with their students for a chance to experience a bit of student life at Stony Brook University. Join us for a weekend of fun-filled activities and entertainment for the entire family!
Family members have the opportunity to attend lectures presented by select faculty, become members-for-the day of some of our student groups, enjoy a tailgate barbeque, and support our Stony Brook Seawolves at the football game!
Family Weekend provides a great opportunity for family members to connect with one another, and become familiar with university faculty and staff. We look forward to seeing you soon!
