Homecoming and Family Weekend combined

May 18, 2009

KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University's Family Weekend--traditionally known as parents weekend--is set for Oct. 23-25, which is also WMU Homecoming Weekend.

The Broncos' football opponent for Homecoming and Family Weekend is the defending Mid-American Conference champion University at Buffalo. Also already on the calendar for the weekend are two Bronco volleyball matches and a School of Music concert.

Returning alumni and students' families will have more events and activities from which to choose. Family members can participate in the Homecoming Campus Classic 5K and 1K races, and alumni can join in the Grabs the Reins Brunch, held annually on Sunday of Family Weekend.

Combining the two weekends will create larger than usual numbers of people coming from outside the area, so organizers will be urging alumni and students' families to make hotel reservations as early as possible.

Complete information and registration for Family Weekend will be available on the Web by August at wmich.edu/parents/weekend.

In the meantime, if you have questions, contact Shari Glaser, director of parent and family programs, at shari.glaser@wmich.edu.
