Family Weekend 2018

Family Weekend is an annual weekend each fall for parents and families to connect with their students, Marquette, and the city of Milwaukee. Events are open to all family members of Marquette students.

Family Weekend includes many types of activities that allow you to explore Marquette and Milwaukee! You can decide if you'd like to explore the campus scene, venture out for fun in the city, or a little of both. Many events are free and do not require advanced registration.
