Parents and Families Programs


Part of our goal as the Office of Parent & Family Programs is to provide you with access to events and programming specifically for parents and families of students at the University of Arkansas. We have two main events throughout the academic year, Family Weekend and Spring Family Reunion. These events are great times to visit with your student and even get to know other Razorback families.

In 2007, the first Spring Family Reunion was held as a sequel to Family Weekend due to overwhelming excitement and attendance. Now we invite parents back to campus each spring to reunite with their students and the University of Arkansas, in addition to partaking in various family friendly events.

NOTE: Your University of Arkansas student does not need a package for the weekend—they get into all events free with their University of Arkansas Student ID and accompaniment of their family.
