A New Approach
Instead of a singular fall weekend, we're offering a series of family-focused virtual programs throughout the school year. We don't want any family to miss out on this content and will always follow up with a virtual recording where possible. View these programs on the Family Calendar (see sidebar).
Planning a Fall Visit
If a visit makes sense for you, your student, and your family, we recommend coming (at your convenience) around the month of October. The first six weeks are a critical time in the semester - students' academic and social experiences become patterns around this time, and your student will be able to share more of their experience with you. It's a win-win. We have a full roster of on-campus and virtual events hosted by the academic colleges the last week of September through October. See the event listings by month in the Family Calendar.
We encourage you to follow your student's lead. Spend time with them, meet their friends, visit their favorite places, and get to know our campus at your pace. For guidance (and perhaps some inspiration), we crowd-sourced some 'best of UVM' experiences organized by theme below.
