Please join us for Fall Family Weekend, an annual event that serves as an opportunity for parents and families of Auburn University students to attend campus activities during the fall semester. Fall Family Weekend will be held September 28-30, 2018. All Auburn family members are invited to experience student life, as well as discover a wide variety of offerings on campus and in the Auburn community.
Many campus departments and local businesses work together to make Fall Family Weekend a great event for you and your family. In addition to a tailgate hosted by the Office of Parent and Family programs, there will be many other ways for families to explore Auburn’s campus and community.
