Falcon Family Weekend


Falcon Family Weekend is an annual tradition on Bowling Green State University's campus. Our goal is to bring parents and families to the BGSU campus to reconnect with their students and see what life is like as a Falcon. 

Join us September 16-18, 2016 for a weekend packed with activities, games, and events suitable for the entire family!

If students did not pick up their family's optional items that were purchased in the Office of Campus Activities, please report to The Oaks dining hall from 9 - 11am, Saturday, September 17.  Note, you must have a photo ID to pick up items.
