Family Weekend

Experience Life as a Falcon!

September 18 - 20, 2015 

Step 1: Learn About It

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. We value your support of our university community and hope to see you during the next Family Weekend!
Schedule of events


To make this week special, BGSU organizes events and activities that the whole family can enjoy. Registering your family simply helps BGSU staff prepare for the weekend. Please note, some elements of Family Weekend (ie..the Falcon Family Weekend Fan Pack) will have a cost associated with it. However, there is no cost to register. Unless otherwise noted, program admittance is granted on a first come, first served basis. Click here to register today!
