Family Weekend

SAVE THE DATE: October 31 - November 2, 2014

Each year, Family Weekend is an opportunity to spend time with your students in their new home, to talk with their academic advisors, professors, and residence directors, and to get a glimpse of daily life at the college. Parents, siblings, and friends are able to attend workshops relating to Simon’s Rock students and their future education, as well as academic classes, concerts, and local events. In addition to learning more about life on campus, Family Weekend is a great opportunity to enjoy a fall weekend in the Berkshires.
