Parents and Family Weekend: October 25-26, 2019

In October, Tufts welcomes thousands of parents and friends to campus for Parents and Family Weekend, a celebration of life on campus. Each year we showcase our extraordinary professors and students, inviting parents to participate in lectures, cheer the Jumbos on the field, and see the many student performance groups.

There are over 100 events programmed throughout the weekend; however, we only request registration for event where space is limited. For a full weekend schedule please click here.

Online registration is now closed, but you are also welcome to register in person when you arrive on campus in the lobby of Sophia Gordon Hall (15 Talbot Avenue) from 10am to 6pm on Friday October 25th, and from 8am to 1:30pm on Saturday October 26th. All pre-registered guests please also visit Sophia Gordon Hall upon arrival to pick up registration packets, receive last-minute updates and mix and mingle with Jumbo families. We look forward to seeing you and your family. Enjoy the time with your Jumbo!
