Parents, siblings and other relatives and friends will come to Wofford College Oct. 6-8 to spend time with their students and celebrate Family Weekend.

“Family Weekend is a chance for students to welcome their families to their home away from home,” says Thom Henson ’96, director of family philanthropy and engagement. “It’s important for families to see the impact Wofford is having on their students and the collective impact students have on the college.”
