Family and Friends Weekend
Office of Student Events and Orientation Programs
Family and Friends Weekend is an exciting opportunity for parents and other family members of current Bryant students to visit campus and enjoy the community and spirit our students experience daily!
Family members are invited to tour the campus, meet other families, attend a football game, sample the dining hall, partake in a delicious outdoor barbeque near the stadium, enjoy entertainment such as a student talent showcase and other performances, shop the on-campus farmer’s market, and participate in a 5K hosted by the PA program! Students will be able to showcase their home away from home to their families and involve them in campus life. Look forward to fun traditions such as the Annual Duck Race on the Bryant Pond, and much more!
We are excited to host the 2022 Family & Friends Weekend this year from November 4-6! This exciting weekend includes Comedian Jay Larson, the annual Student Talent Showcase, and the Festival Lunch.
