Get Ready for Family Weekend!


We are just days away from Family Weekend 2016 and can’t wait to welcome our Mason families to campus for a weekend full of fun, family-friendly activities designed to highlight life at Mason!

As you and your family prepare to make your way to campus, be sure to pack items to donate to Mason’s food pantry. The pantry works to provide assistance to over 600 food insecure students each month and you can help provide that assistance! Items needed include canned goods, non-perishable foods, cleaning supplies, and toiletries and will be collected at the Family Weekend Welcome Center

If you and your family are registered for Family Weekend, you will receive an email with important information about parking, check-in, and events. For the most up-to-date schedule of events, visit or download our mobile schedule at

If you are interested in attending Family Weekend but did not register by the October 2 deadline, we invite you to stop by check-in in Dewberry Lobby on Friday, October 14 from noon – 7:30 p.m. or on Saturday, October 15 from 8:30 a.m. – 6 p.m. to purchase tickets for events that are not yet sold out, or to secure your access passes.

We encourage you to connect with us on social media throughout the weekend using the hashtag #FW2016 and on Facebook. Please feel free to contact us by email at or by phone at 703-993-2475 if you have any questions.

We look forward to welcoming you to campus this weekend!
