Families Weekend
2020 date TBD
Each Fall we welcome family members, alumnae/i and friends of Vassar back to campus for Families Weekend. It’s a time to experience some of the richness and diversity of campus life with many events offered especially for families and opportunities to spend time with your student. The weekend’s activities include off campus events like the Arlington Street Fair, unique art offerings from the Barefoot Monkeys to the Vassar Haiti Project’s annual exhibit, and the Hudson Valley Harvest Reception. Learn more.
