Parents and Family Weekend is an annual opportunity to welcome our extended Bulldog family for a taste of life at Drake. As a student, you can catch up with your family members, introduce them to your new friends, and show off the University. You and your family will have a chance to experience everything from athletics to arts, clubs to student activities, all in one weekend.
This is no minor event. Past years’ Parents and Family Weekends have included concerts from Drake’s music ensembles, guest artists, special meals, an address from the University’s president, campus fun run/walks, and an array of other social activities offered throughout the weekend by residence halls, student organizations, fraternities, and sororities.
Who knows what exciting surprises this year’s weekend will hold?
