An annual fall semester tradition, Falcon Family Weekend invites parents, family members and student supporters to BGSU to visit their students, create memories and participate in events and programs throughout the University.

In addition to the volleyball game, Falcon Families explored campus, watched dueling pianos at Social House at The Oaks, played drag bingo, were wowed by magician Daniel Martin, took in movies and games, and much more.
